FORT WORTH, Texas — A Texas police officer dressed as Batman stopped a would-be thief after the man attempted to take four DVDs from a Walmart, KDFW reports.
On Saturday, Fort Worth Officer Damon Cole was off-duty and dressed as Batman for a kids’ safety fair when he was alerted that a man was attempting to shoplift four movies. Cole dresses up in superhero costumes and visits sick children all over the country in his off time.
Cole, who arrested and cited the suspect, posted about the arrest on Twitter Saturday night.
Adding to the irony, one of the movies the suspect tried to steal included “The Lego Batman Movie.”
“You cannot steal my movie. Come on,” Cole said.
