Video: Batman pulled over by police


Police in the US pulled over a motorist dressed as Batman, but the caped crusader escaped - legally - without a ticket.

The man, wearing cape and mask, was driving a black Lamborghini with Batman logo tags outside Washington. Officers wanted to talk to him about his superhero logo licence plate, which is not an approved plate in Maryland.

The driver, Lenny B Robinson, dresses as the superhero to visit sick children at hospitals, and was able to show them a proper licence plate.
