SILVER SPRING, Md. - The identity of the man behind the Batman mask pulled over last week by Montgomery County Police has been revealed.
Lenny B. Robinson was pulled over last week for driving his black Lamborghini "Batmobile" without license plates.
Robinson tells The Washington Post that he really plays the Batman role for the kids.
The Baltimore County businessman visits sick kids in hospitals, dressed in a full, professionally-made costume. He hands out Batman gear to cheer the kids up.
Montgomery County Police tweeted a photo Friday afternoon of the unlikely traffic stop involving the Caped Crusader.
Robinson was heading southbound on Route 29 at Prelude Drive.
The back tag on the "Batmobile" was the superhero's emblem rather than state tags required by law, according to police.
Police say the photo of their officers pulling over Batman became a sensation on Twitter.
Apparently, the Dark Knight of Gotham City does answer to law enforcement.
