The Dark Knight appears to have taken a dark turn this week in Seattle, where a man allegedly hurled a Batarang at the police car pursuing him. That may be just another night in Gotham City, but it's a little out of the ordinary for Seattle.
It all began Monday evening when police were called to a Capitol Hill bar after a man allegedly threatened a bouncer with a homemade spear (it was a knife attached to a metal pole, with no obvious Bat-emblem). The suspect fled, and during their pursuit police saw him throw something toward their SUV. It turned out to be, yes, a metal Batarang.
After they captured the 23-year-old suspect, officers discovered "a sharp, black Batman-style throwing star" embedded in the front end of the police SUV.
The man was booked for felony assault, but police are requesting additional weapons and obstruction charges.
