MCPD Release Video of Batman In Action

The Montgomery County Police have released the dash cam video of Batman's traffic stop.


On March 21, at 10:47 a.m., for not displaying his license plate. The curious traffic stop made national as well as local news. Batman's true identity was soon who visits children in hospitals to lift their spirits.

Now police have released the video of Batman's traffic stop—a little ridiculous, mostly funny and a whole lot of endearing.

"Batman's going to be stopping at Southbound 29 at Prelude [Drive in White Oak], and again no tags, it's just got the Batman seal on the vehicle. It's a black Lamborghini and a driver dressed as Batman," the officer reports. The officer later goes on to joke, "You can send me Robin if you wish," when asked if he needs backup.

When the officer asks to see the driver's registration, Batman must get out of his Batmobile, nearly losing a door to oncoming traffic and dig about the car searching for tags.

About 10 minutes later, after posing for a photo shoot with the responding officers, Batman is on his way, cape billowing in the wind. His destination is Georgetown Hospital to visit sick children.

According to Montgomery County Police Spokeswoman Angela Cruz, the officers did remind him he should have the car's legal tags attached in the future. "Ultimately, if he still doesn't have tags on the vehicle, officers will probably pull him over again," Cruz said.

I love how polite and respectful Batman is, walking up to each officer and shaking their hand. What a great witness to everyone watching! Civility lives on!

Um, how would you act if three cops stopped you? He's a great guy, it seems, but not sure what you would be expecting. I thought it was a little odd the cops were calling him "Dude" and "Brother." Here's the story about him. http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/rosenwald-md/post/who-is-the-route-29-batman-this-guy/2012/03/28/gIQA8nPjgS_blog.html?tid=pm_pop
