In the movies, Gotham City police required a giant spotlight to find Batman.

Montgomery County police didn't have to go quite so far, finding him cruising around in a Lamborghini Wednesday in Silver Spring and pulling the unidentified man over for not having proper tags. The bizarre picture was posted to the department's official Twitter page today, followed by a note clarifying that the "Batmobile" wasn't towed. 

Officer Janelle Smith, a police spokeswoman, said the driver is a Good Samaritan who dresses up as Batman and visits sick children at local hospitals. He has tags for the car, but had removed them and put the Batman logo in place instead. Police told him to affix the tags and sent him on his way. 

This of course led to a few quips on the Montgomery County police Facebook page:

"Please people, remember to use your bat signal when you change lanes."

"What a Joker."

"Why so serious, MCPD?"

"Bff! Boom! Pow!"

You get the point.

This comes the same day that cash went flying out of an armored car on I-270 in Montgomery County. State police are asking people who pulled over to grab the money - described as a snow globe of currency - to return it, no questions asked. A strange couple days in Montgomery County, indeed.
