Caped man charged with trespassing


----

PETOSKEY — Holy trespassing, Batman!

A 31-year-old man dressed as the comic book Caped Crusader was arrested Wednesday in Petoskey after he was seen hanging from the top wall of a downtown business.

Officers went up on the roof about 12:40 a.m. and pulled the 31-year-old man back onto the building.

Public Safety Director John Calabrese said he believes the man "enjoys doing this."

Officers confiscated a baton-like weapon, a can of chemical irritant spray and lead-lined gloves.

The Harbor Springs man is awaiting arraignment on charges of trespassing and possession of a dangerous weapon. He's being held in the Emmet County jail.
