Michigan “Joker” arrested for stealing Batman memorabilia. Police find nothing in his pockets but knives and lint.

July 28, 2008

Meet 20 yr. old Spencer Taylor of Three Rivers, Michigan. Apparently, young Spencer was so enthralled with the latest Batman film he decided to steal some of the film’s memorabilia from a local movie theater. He was dressed in character as the Joker when he tried to liberate the Batman posters and displays. Based on the mugshot above, you can tell he wasn’t too successful. Police took his mugshot with Spencer still in character with face paint, and they made him wash it off and took it in character as a comic super fan. He was arrested and booked on charges of felony larceny and malicious destruction of property charges.
