PETOSKEY — A Harbor Springs man who was arrested after being spotted atop a building while wearing a Batman costume won't be dressing up for a while.
Mark Williams, 32, was sentenced Monday to six months of probation. During that time, a judge says he's not allowed to wear costumes — including the Batman one he was wearing when Petoskey police picked him up in May.
The Harbor Springs man earlier pleaded guilty to attempted resisting/obstructing an officer.
Williams said he was inspired by others who dress as super heroes to prevent crime and reach out to the homeless.
Officers in Petoskey also confiscated a baton-like weapon and a can of chemical irritant spray. Williams says he didn't intend to use them.
