PETOSKEY, Mich. -

A Michigan man whose efforts to keep an eye on his community while wearing a Batman outfit landed him in court has pleaded not guilty.

State troopers arrested 33-year-old Mark Wayne Williams on Sept. 29 because they said he refused to leave them alone while they searched for a driver who fled an accident. Williams was charged with resisting and obstructing police in an investigation.

The Petoskey News-Review reports Williams entered the plea Thursday in District Court in Petoskey. He's due back in court Nov. 21.

Williams has said he had good intentions.

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