If you’re going to be committing a crime and decide to dress in a disguise, I suppose it makes sense to dress as your favorite villain from a movie? Then again, this just isn’t a good look, period.
According to the AP: Police in Virginia have arrested a man who was dressed as comic book villain the Joker and reportedly carrying a sword. Winchester Police Department spokeswoman Jennifer Hall said in a news release that the department got several 911 calls Friday afternoon reporting a man made up as Batman’s nemesis. He was wearing a cape and carrying a sword. Thirty-one-year-old Jeremy Putman has been charged with wearing a mask in public, a felony that can result in a year in jail. It wasn’t immediately clear whether Putman has a lawyer.
I’m confused. He was wearing a cape too? So was Putman mentally conflicted? The only reason I kid here is because he just wielded a sword. I think if he had a bomb or went on a shooting spree this would be a little different. Thankfully no one got hurt.
Would the joker be a sword carrier though? I mean if Jeremy’s going to get this one right he probably should have researched the role better. The Joker’s definitely not the sword carrying type.
Here’s his mugshot.
