Batman charged with obstruction

PETOSKEY, Mich. (AP) -- The search for a driver who fled an accident scene in northern Michigan over the weekend was apparently a job for a dog, not a bat.

State troopers arrested 33-year-old Mark Wayne Williams because they say he refused to leave them alone after he showed up Saturday night wearing a Batman outfit.

Williams wasn't carrying any dangerous weapons, but his costume and gear were confiscated.
