More information comes out about a Maryland man who was stopped by police in his black Lamborghini convertible, dressed in a full real life Batman costume.
The artificial Batman mobile looked nice as a Lamborghini, but the capped crusader has been unmasked to be the alter ego of Lenny B. Robinson, a real life self-made business man during the day when he’s not fighting crime in Maryland by night.
Police stopped him last week for not having the proper license plates and registration on his bat mobile. It was also found out that the reason he speeds around in the costume is to visit sick children in D.C. area hospitals, where he delivers presents. How can you really give this guy a ticket?
Washington Post writer Mike Rosenwald, previously got to ride with Robinson as he made his rounds in costume to the hospitals. During that time, Robinson told Rosenwald, “Eventually, it sinks in, and you become him (Batman). It feels like I have a responsibility that’s beyond a normal person. And that responsibility is to be there for the kids, to be strong for them, and to make them smile as much as I can.”
Rosenwald said, “He (Robinson) understands that might sound corny, but he doesn’t care.”
At the time of the traffic stop Batman was on his way to a ‘Superhero Celebration’ for hospitalized kids organized by ‘Hope for Henry’, which is a charity for kids with cancer and other serious illnesses.
The authentic-looking costume that Robinson wears cost him $5,000. The officers who pulled him over let him off with a warning. There are good cops in this world, ladies and gentlemen.
