A man in the U.K. has revealed that he was the man dressed in a Batman costume who dropped off a suspect at a local police station.
According to The Guardian, last week, the caped crusader was seen on tape at the Trafalgar House police station dropping off a man wanted for burglary, fraud and other charges. Police were more curious about the Batman character than the person he left at the station.
However, on Monday, the man finally removed his cowl for The Daily Telegraph. Stan Worby, 39, who delivers Chinese food during the day in Bradford, revealed himself to be Batman at night. He said that he got a call from the suspect, Danny Frayne.
"I got a call from Danny whilst I was at Wembley and he said, 'can you run me to the cop station?' But as I was in London I couldn't,” Worby explained. “I told him as soon as I was home I would run him to Bradford central police station. We got back about 1am, and I picked Danny up in a minibus at 1.30am.”
Since he was dropping his friend off anyway, he decided to have fun with the cops and dressed up as Batman. “I'd had a lot to drink and it was a great day out - I got some strange looks when I got to the cop station though. One policeman looked at me and just laughed....I said to the policeman, ‘I deserve a medal, I'm a caped crusader.’”
Worby said that he bought the costume at a store, along with a Robin costume as well.
“Danny's a good friend of mine and I've known him for 15 years or so. Who knows if I'll be doing some more crime-fighting in the future?” he told the Telegraph.
