PETOSKEY, Mich. -- A northern Michigan man charged with obstructing the police while dressed as Batman has pleaded not guilty.

State troopers arrested 33-year-old Mark Wayne Williams on Sept. 29 because he wouldn't leave them alone while they searched for a driver who had fled an accident. Williams was charged with resisting and obstructing police in an investigation.

Williams has said he had good intentions.

It's not Williams' first brush with the law as the caped crusader. He was sentenced to six months of probation last year after police received a report of a man dressed as Batman on the roof of a Petoskey business.
