Christian Bale may have driven around Gotham in a black Lamborghini during "The Dark Knight," but that was as Bruce Wayne, not Batman.

Nevertheless, that didn't stop one citizen in Silver Spring, Maryland from taking a spin in his sports car dressed as the masked crusader. Unfortunately, he ended up being pulled over by local police when cops noticed his license plate was just a bat emblem.

According to WTOP, the man was en route to visit sick children in the hospital, which was why he was wearing costume.

Thankfully, the officers decided to take some photographic evidence of the traffic stop. You can check out all of the photos over on the Montgomery County Police Department's Facebook page.

Hopefully, these types of frivolous events will not occur in "The Dark Knight Rises," which hits theaters on July 20.
