Batman gets a flat
Hear a 911 call from a passing motorist describing the scene.
WASHINGTON - Even the Caped Crusader needs some help once in a while.
Such was the case on Halloween in Howard County, when police were called at about 11 a.m. to help out a motorist having some trouble on southbound Route 29.
The two Howard County officers who arrived found a fellow crimefighter in distress: A costumed Batman had gotten a flat tire near Johns Hopkins Road while on his way to visit sick children at a hospital in D.C.
The officers got the vehicle to the side of the road to be towed, and Batman hitched a ride with a friend to the hospital -- but not before posing for a pic.
