Real Life Joker Arrested in Miami

Dade County, Miami, got a recent visit from a would-be supervillain, as a man with obvious obsession with Batman nemesis The Joker, was arrested for pointing a hand gun at motorists in traffic, Tuesday evening.

As reported by the Associated Press, the assailant was 29-year-old Lawrence Sullivan, who was arrested and charged with carrying a concealed firearm. Sullivan has elaborate Joker tattoos - including the smile scars at both corners of his mouth, "Ha Ha" on his cheek, and a Batman symbol with a knife piercing through it (and the word 'f*ck') on his forehead. As you can see, his hair is also green, and he has black "war paint" around his eyes.

In short, this guy is a pretty good amalgamation of the Heath Ledger and Jared Leto movie Jokers - though it's unclear if he's ever actually picked up a comic book. Aside from obviously being very disturbed, a lot of hardcore fans might consider the guy to be poser.

...Just don't tell him that.

No word yet on when we'll next see Jared Leto's Joker in the DC Extended Universe, after his debut in Suicide Squad.
