The New Dynamic Duo
Pan-handling caped crusaders and the familiar faces of Star Wars and Sesame Street are giving police along Los Angeles' Hollywood Boulevard more trouble than the real criminals.Move over Robin, Batman’s got a new partner, and he’s seven feet tall and stinks like wet dog. It makes sense when you think about it, they’re both bad boys doing good on the wrong side of the law. Kindred spirits, like a nerd version of Every Which Way But Loose (which isn’t to say that Every Which Way But Loose was cool-- well, this poster might’ve been, if that monkey wasn’t such goddamn ham).Back on the Boulevard:
An inebriated Batman was arrested recently after he allegedly insisted on using a portable toilet that had been rented by local union workers who were picketing a business on the boulevard.
After the workers tried to usher him along, Batman got confrontational and enlisted the help of Chewbacca. The Los Angeles police department showed up soon after and arrested the dark avenger for disorderly conduct.
Charlie Chaplin didn't say anything, but he did mimic the tipping of a flask.Oh, you’ll get yours, Chaplin you fink. You don’t want to know what Batman does to stool pigeons. Anyways, I’m sure it was just a misunderstanding, right? Batman wouldn’t go looking for trouble…
According to Elmo, it just wasn't Batman's day.Okay, maybe he would. What’s worse is that he’s not the only superhero going through a rough patch:
"He said, 'Business is so bad, I'd rather get arrested than be out here today.' I swear to God he said this."
LAPD officers posing as tourists also busted Mr. Incredible as well as a man dressed as the villain from the Scream movie franchise for excessive begging.”Excessive begging”? That doesn’t paint a pretty picture. Hollywood is simultaneously depressing and entertaining; how do they manage that?
