Real Life Superheroes Are Getting Arrested

Posted by Paul Constant on Tue, Aug 7, 2012 at 2:59 PM

Here's Bleeding Cool reporting on what could be the first arrest in a new trend:

Ex-military policeman Matthew Argintar, 23 from New Jersey, is a Real Life Super Hero. Dressed in a Batman-like face mask, a cape, arm pads and a bulletproof vest. And also a pair of handcuffs. Outside a Home Depot, he began asking people if there was anything they needed help with.

Instead, people looked at the man in the mask and weird outfit and, getting an Aurora shooting vibe from his Batman mask, instead called the police. Argintar was arrested for "disorderly conduct and unlawful possession of handcuffs." Go to Bleeding Cool for the mugshot, and go to Lehigh Valley Live for more information, including a photo of the arrest and an interview with eyewitnesses and the potty-mouthed "superhero."
