Michigan BATMAN wanna-be busted AGAIN because he wouldn’t leave cops alone as they conducted a criminal investigation.

State troopers arrested Mark Wayne Williams, 33, after he showed up on an accident crime scene wearing his homemade  Batman outfit.

As THE ENQUIRER reported previously Williams was arrested last year in  full Bat-regalia after police received a report of a man dressed as Batman on the roof of a Petoskey business.  When law enforcement arrived, they found Williams, dressed as Batman carrying a baton-type striking weapon, a can of chemical irritant spray and a pair of sand-filled gloves.

He pleaded guilty to one count of attempted resisting and obstructing a police officer and was sentenced to six months of probation during which he was forbidden to his bat-wear.

But never say never to a Cowled crime-buster – especially around Halloween.

"He wouldn't clear the scene, and we had a canine out there and he kept screwing up the scent," State Police Sgt. Jeff Gorno told the Petoskey News-Review. "He said he wanted to help us look for the driver."

"We didn't want the dog to track Batman instead of the accident scene, and he was getting in the way of officers who had a job to do," Sgt. Gortno said.

Bat-Williams wasn't carrying any dangerous weapons, but his costume and gear were confiscated AGAIN, Sgt.  Gorno told representatives of the Fourth Estate.

Williams was once again was charged with resisting and obstructing police in an investigation. He posted bat-bond and was then released from the county jail.

Holy miscarriage of justice!
