Man Arrested For Throwing A "Batarang" At The Seattle Police


Holy "Batarang," Batman! In Seattle, Washington on Monday, police arrested a man who threatened a bouncer with a homemade spear and then later threw a "sharp, black, Batman-style throwing star" at an official police vehicle. 

The 23-year-old man was arrested on Capitol Hill in Seattle not long after throwing a "Batarang" that embedded in the front end of the SUV, according to Q13 Fox. Police were called to the scene of the incident at a bar near East Denny Way and East Olive Way around 6:30 p.m. when they received reports of a man threatening a bouncer with a homemade spear. The man crafted the spear out of a metal pole with a knife attached to the end.  

Police said the man then left the bar and was pursued by two officers in a patrol car. In the midst of the pursuit, the officers reported seeing the man throw something at the vehicle, which they later discovered was the "Batarang."


The man was eventually caught on the 800 block of East Denny Way. He was booked in the King County Jail for investigation of felony assault, and police are now requesting additional weapons and obstruction charges, according to the Seattle Times.

No reports yet on whether this man was the actual caped crusader, but from the sounds of things, it is safe to say that he was not cleaning the streets for the sake of justice when he threatened a bar bouncer with a homemade spear and chucked a "Batarang" at the police.

How do you think the two officers reacted when they discovered the man threw a Batman-style throwing star their vehicle?
