BAR HARBOR BATMAN GOES BEHIND BARS
APRIL FOOL'S JOKE FOUND NOT-SO-FUNNY BY BAR HARBOR'S FINEST
Lots of people were posting jokes as updates on Facebook yesterday, and the caped crusader of Bar Harbor, Maine, was no exception.
The Bar Harbor Batman (who was profiled a little over a year ago on this blog HERE) does parade appearances and foot patrols and posted this April Fool status update:
"I demand payment of 1 million Dollars or I will Blow up the Hospital. Once the funds are secured, Private Message me for Further Instruction."
Facebook followers didn't see the funny side and reported the Facebook posting to the police, who showed up at the Bar Harbor Batman's humble abode to haul him in.
He is out on bail and returns to court in June to face "terrorizing charges," according to a report you can read HERE.
This is a rare case where Batman will have to stand before a judge and prove that he is...funny.
