Maine's "Bar Harbor Batman" arrested over Facebook Post

Anonymous Coward writes | more than 2 years ago

An anonymous reader writes "In Bar Harbor, Maine, there is a self-styled proxy Batman who does not have a great relationship with local police. On Sunday, that relationship took a turn for the worse when Christopher Schwartz, also known as Bar Harbor Batman, posted a comment on his hero persona Facebook Page http://www.facebook.com/pages/Bar-Harbor-Batman/137309398959?_fb_noscript=1 that he says was meant as an April Fools’ joke for the enjoyment of his 1,200 or so fans.

The comment that got Batman arrested and charged with "terrorizing"? “I demand payment of 1 million dollars or I will blow up the hospital,” Schwartz posted on the site. “Once the funds are secured, private message me for further instruction.”"
