An Ontario Provincial Police officer pulled over Batman while he was on his way back home in his Batmobile. But it wasn’t because he broke the law or anything.
Stephen Lawrence, probably the most devoted Bruce Wayne impersonator in Canada, said he was driving from Parry Sound on Saturday when he noticed people taking photos of him in his vehicle.
“I noticed that I was being tailed by a couple of cameras — I can tell when there are recordings happening of me driving — so I noticed at a stop light that a vehicle … was an OPP cruiser,” Lawrence told Global News.
“I took advantage of this. I pulled up beside the cruiser in the left turn lane and asked the officer to give me a hand with the cameras behind me. The officer said yes they can.”
The officer escorted him for a while, and put on their emergency lights a few moments later, pulling the superhero over. “I jumped out and asked if everything was OK.” It was. The police officer just wanted something to remember the joyous occasion by.
