Armed Standoff Brings Canadian Batman to Help Police

Here’s a weird one for ya. A dude decked out in full Batman regalia reportedly showed up at the scene of an armed standoff between police and a citizen, offering to help the cops out.

I think maybe it’s time for this guy to pump the brakes on his cosplaying.

The police in West Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada were in a standoff on Saturday. They were outside a house, with their guns drawn, after they got reports of a domestic incident and someone with a gun inside. And as they were setting up… BATMAN walked up and offered to help. Seriously.

A guy dressed in a full-on Batman costume drove up in a truck with the Batman logo on it, hopped out, and walked up to the cops and offered to help. A neighbor who had been filming got the entire thing on video.

The cops told Batman to get the hell out of there and issued a statement reminding people NOT to do what that guy did. Fortunately, the standoff ended peacefully when the cops went inside and found that the person didn’t have a gun after all.

I don’t always agree with police, but this time I certainly do: Batman wanna-bes ought to stay at home, or at least stay away from actual law enforcement operations.

What do you think possessed this guy to think he was an actual superhero?
