Petoskey Batman Pleads Not Guilty to Felony Charge

Mark Wayne Williams, a man better known as ‘Batman’ in the Northern Michigan town of Petoskey, pleaded not guilty today to a felony charge of obstructing police in an investigation. The charge stems from a September incident in which police arrived at an auto accident where one of the drivers had fled the scene, and were using the help of a canine to track down the offending vehicle. By the time they got there, cops say Williams was already on the scene, dressed as Batman.
