According to an AP story, a young man dressed as The Joker—complete with purple suit, green dyed hair and clown face paint—was apprehended by local police inside a Three Rivers, Michigan movie theater last Sunday. Like his cinematic counterpart, 20-year-old Spencer Taylor was making mischief: police caught him trying to take movie posters and other “The Dark Knight” paraphernalia in the theater lobby.
The story states that Taylor will be arraigned on August 5. Just a thought: Mr. Taylor may want to call in legal defense from Georgia District Attorney Paul Howard, a.k.a. “Superlawyer.” Howard even has his own cape.
