Holy Busted Batman

If you walk down Hollywood Boulevard you’d come across a bevy of costumed characters.  Complaints have increased about these street performers soliciting money from tourists.  Legally they can accept tips, but not ask for them.

Batman, alias Tony Tomey, was singled out and taken away in handcuffs after police monitored a group of six superheroes on Wednesday afternoon.

Joe McQueen who dresses as the Incredible Hulk was dismayed over the arrest.

I knew this day was going to come, eventually.

Elmo, Mr Incredible and Chewbacca have all been arrested for various legal infringements in recent years.  In 2007 another Batman impersonator was arrested for disorderly conduct after demanding to use a portable lavatory union workers had for a picket.  In 2009 Spider-Man was arrested after he allegedly assaulted a man on the boulevard.

In 2007 and 2009 there wasn’t a Batman or Spider-Man movie forcing the crime fighters to take to the streets to make money and adding to their bitterness.
