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."
