A 23-year-old Mansfield Township man pretending to be a superhero in a Home Depot parking lot pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct, according to a report on lehighvalleylive.com.
Matthew Argintar was arrested July 31 after walking around the parking lot asking customers if they needed assistance, an original report on lehighvalleylive.com stated.
The conviction carries a fine of $133 and other court costs, the report said. Authorities dropped a charge of unlawful possession of handcuffs.
While Argintar felt he was trying to be a Good Samaritan during the incident, it was his tactical pants, elbow and arm pads, bulletproof vest and Batman mask that alarmed those in his presence.
The incident came just weeks after a masked gunman opened fire in a Colorado movie theater, killing 12, during a showing of the latest Batman film "The Dark Knight Rises."
