ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION STORY: He usually fights crime, but "Batman" found himself questioned by police just outside of Washington, D.C. last week. Police dashcam video showed a man dressed as the comic book superhero as he was pulled over by police in Montgomery County, Maryland on Wednesday (March 21). Police said Batman's black Lamborghini did not have proper license plates. "He's got no tags but he's got Batman on it and he's dressed like Batman," an unidentified officer said on the video. Police questioned Batman, whose license plate was inside the car. He was not ticketed. Media reports identified the superhero as Lenny Robinson, a Baltimore businessman who dresses like Batman to entertain sick children at area hospitals. Robinson told police he had been on his way to Georgetown University Hospital. "Hey, do you mind if we take a picture of you?" an officer asked after the situation was resolved. Batman agreed and then posed for the officers' photographs before continuing his drive. Back in the police car, the officers reflected on the incident. "It just proves the point, if you wait long enough you will see everything," one officer joked.
