'Batman' Pulled Over by Cops in Black Lamborghini

By Stephanie Rabiner, Esq. on March 29, 2012 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

Montgomery County Police were in for a big surprise last week when they pulled over a black Lamborghini just outside of Silver Spring, Md. The car's license plates had been replaced with the Batman symbol and the driver was dressed in a $5,000 Batman costume.

They had inadvertently pulled over Batman. They were so excited, they even took photos and posted them on the department's Facebook page.

But not before they ordered him to affix his real license plates to the car. Officers pulled over Batman, real name Lenny B. Robinson, because of the missing plates, explains the Baltimore Sun. Like in most states, Maryland requires motor vehicle owners to display both the front and back license plates. Law enforcement needs to be able to identify vehicles from afar.

Though such violations often result in a "fix-it" citation, the Sun reports that Batman was given a verbal warning and sent on his way. This may or may not have something to with where Batman was going before he was unceremoniously pulled over.

Robinson is actually a self-made businessman who visits sick children in hospitals. He owns both the costume and the car, and purchases about $25,000 worth of Batman gear each year to hand out during his visits. He's also been known to visit schools to talk about bullying, according to the Washington Post.

So it seems that when police pulled over Batman, they really did pull over a wealthy businessman turned charitable do-gooder.
