(CBS/AP) PETOSKEY, Mich. - Wonder what Batman's been up to lately?

A 31-year-old man dressed as the Caped Crusader was up to the top wall of a downtown business in Petoskey, Mich. in the wee hours Wednesday, when the costumed climber got arrested for trespassing.

Public Safety Director John Calabrese says he believes the man in the mask "enjoys doing this."

The Petoskey News-Review reports officers went up on the roof about 12:40 a.m. and pulled the 31-year-old man back onto the building.

Officers confiscated a baton-like weapon, a can of chemical irritant spray and lead-lined gloves.

The Harbor Springs man is awaiting arraignment on charges of trespassing and possession of a dangerous weapon. He's being held in the Emmet County jail.

Petoskey is about 225 miles northwest of Detroit.
