Man Dressed As Batman Sentenced On Trespass Charge

PETOSKEY, Mich. (AP) – A 33-year-old Northern Michigan man who dresses up as Batman has avoided more jail but must apologize to police after interfering with them at an accident scene.

Mark Wayne Williams was sentenced Friday in 90th District Court after agreeing to a plea deal charging him with simple trespass.

He received 30 days in jail, but five of those will be done in community service and 23 more will be held in abeyance. Williams was credited for two days served. He only can wear his costume within the Petoskey city limits, about 225 miles northwest of Detroit.

Williams was in the guise of the caped crusader on Sept. 29 when state troopers arrested him because he wouldn’t leave them alone while they searched for a driver who had fled an accident.
