Montgomery County (Md.) Police officers pulled over the Caped Crusader on Route 29 for driving with "no tags on [the] Batmobile," the agency announced on its Twitter feed.

The agency released one picture of the masked superhero with officers via Twitter and posted two more on its Facebook page. Batman, whose real name is Lenny B. Robinson, was pulled over at Prelude Drive in Silver Spring while driving south on March 21.

Robinson was driving his black Lamborghini, which has the Batman symbol instead of license plates. The plates were in the back seat. Robinson was heading to a hospital to visit sick children.

The Washington Post has unmasked Batman's story.

LOL Leave it to Montgomery County to pull Batman over! At least they didn't unmask him. Had to laugh since I am a retired LEO from another county police department.

If you read the whole story, what this guy does is amazing. Visiting children in hospitals and cancer centers and giving them a little joy. The gifts he gives to these kids are purchased out of his own pocket and he seems to genuinely care for these patients. Spending a lot of money for the suit and I even heard he is buying a real Batmobile to drive around.

I would have given Batman a police escort to the Chidren's Hospital......God Bless this guy.....

Holy Hot Rod,Guys!!! I sure hope they extended professional courtesy to the Caped Crusader. I guess Robin was off-duty

that day.

A solution should be found for the plates issue. Maybe Mr. Robinson could just register the car under B-man or D-night. Good man though.

God Bless this guy.

The article says that he was pulled over for no tags, but it doesn't say if they wrote him up, hope he just got a warning.

@David He wasn't cited.

They should have called an Animal Control Officer.
