Batman Beatdown On The Las Vegas Strip

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A man dressed like Batman was body slammed onto a Las Vegas Strip sidewalk after scuffling with a bystander.

Las Vegas police spokesman Bill Cassell said the fight occurred just after 1 p.m. Saturday.

A video of the scuffle posted on YouTube shows the wannabe Caped Crusader and a bystander exchanging words.

Batman throws the first blow and aims a series of body slaps at his rival.

The other man eventually picks up the Batman impersonator and dumps him on the sidewalk.

The man punches the Batman lookalike several times.

Cassell says it was unclear what started the short fight. Neither man involved filed a police report.

Men and women dressed like movie characters are a regular fixture on the Strip.

But Cassell says fights involving costumed characters are rare.
