Sullivan had face tattoos similar to the Batman villain
Lawrence Patrick Sullivan, who sports similar face tattoos and hair to the Dark Knight villain, was apprehended by police on Tuesday night.
Officers in Miami said they found Sullivan with a Smith and Weston handgun with six rounds in the magazine after drivers reported he was waving the weapon at passing cars.
Court records reportedly state Sullivan told the offer: “I don’t have a permit ‘cause it’s too expensive.”
Sullivan, a self-described “tattoo model”, is being held on a £3,850 ($5,000) bond.
Sullivan’s sister, who did not want to be named, told local media: “I don’t believe he was waving a gun around in traffic, he wouldn’t do that. Yes he had a gun, but he wouldn’t wave it around.
