The Joker gets a DUI; why isn’t he laughing?

dennislalimeThe Joker was arrested, this time without Batman’s help.

From the Morning Sentinel:

A man dressed as the Batman villain The Joker was arrested on charges of operating under the influence early Sunday morning.

Dennis Lalime, 64, of Pittsfield, lost control of his 2002 Buick Regal and went off Crawford Road at about 2 a.m., according to Sgt. Timothy Roussin of the Pittsfield Police Department.

Lalime suffered no injuries, but his car was damaged as it struck multiple trees and a rock before it came to rest.

In the mugshot picture police took of Lalime a short while later, he is wearing white facepaint with large black circles around his eyes, and his hair is dyed green, all trademark features of The Joker, the archrival of comic book superhero Batman.

A nearby homeowner heard the crash and called police, leading to Lalime’s arrest by officer Greg Sides.

Roussin said Lalime, who told police he was coming home from a Halloween party in Old Town, was cooperative.
