‘Lego Batman’ DVD thief caught by the Dark Knight himself
A man accused of shoplifting DVDs at a Texas Walmart over the weekend found himself staring down Batman.
Fort Worth Police Officer Damon Cole was dressed as the Dark Knight for a children’s safety fair over the weekend when he was called to duty.
After convincing Walmart employees that he was an off-duty officer, Officer Cole moved in to arrest a suspect found with four stolen DVDs.
“One of the movies he was attempting to steal was ‘Lego Batman.’ You cannot steal my movie! Come on,” the officer joked, a Fox News affiliate reported Monday.
Anthony Drake, a Walmart community involvement member, told the station that Officer Cole handled Saturday’s incident in stride.
“Batman says, ‘I want you to know I have this Batman costume on, but I’m an off-duty police officer,’” he said.
The suspect was given a citation because the stolen property was valued under $100. The man did, however, request a selfie with the officer.
