Batman spotted far from Gotham City at Petoskey car crash scene

When people are injured in a car accident, the first responders--police and emergency medical personnel--have incredibly important jobs to perform. They are tasked with making quick decisions to ensure injured drivers and passengers get the proper medical care, as well conducting an initial investigation in order to learn how the accident happened and who is responsible.

If for some reason they are not able to do their jobs properly, this can have a serious impact on treating the victims and holding an effective investigation. Police in Michigan have been running into trouble in this area lately because a man dressed as Batman has been showing up and getting in the way. On Saturday, this man was arrested when he failed to leave the scene of a car accident in Emmet County.

He has been charged with resisting arrest and obstructing police.

Police were reportedly in the midst of a car accident investigation, using a canine to track scents, when 'Batman' showed up. Police were worried about his scent contaminating the scene.

This man was sentenced to probation for similar crimes last year, and in May he was arrested after being spotted on the top of a building in the Batman costume. He could face two years in jail stemming from that arrest.

In the aftermath of a car accident, it is imperative that authorities are not interrupted in this way. These investigations provide evidence about how the accident was caused--a traffic violation, drunk or distracted driving, for example. After evidence is collected, it is possible to hold responsible parties accountable for their actions, both criminally and civilly.
