11 Photos of Cops Arresting People in Unlikely Costumes
written by Sam Greenspan

If you see a cop arresting someone dressed as beloved character, you're going to take a photo. I'd like to thank you for those photos.

My favorite part is that I'm pretty sure none of these photos was taken on Halloween -- these are people wearing the costumes for whatever reasons at other points in the year. Hey, if you're going to get arrested in a crazy costume, at least go all the way in your individuality and make it happen in, like, March, right?

Here are 11 photos of people in ridiculous costumes being arrested by the cops.
  1. Ronald McDonald.



    You know the Hamburgler would be all over this photo. It's like a mic drop moment for him.

  2. Oompa Loompa.



    This might be the most baffling of all. That's really a little person dressed in a full-on Oompa Loompa costume in the process of being arrested at a clothing store. I mean... Arthur Slugworth must be behind this, right?

  3. Clown.



    I don't know what he did, but based on his feet not filling out his oversized clown shoes, at least we know he didn't rob the Kwik-E-Mart.

  4. Superman, Spider-Man and Catwoman.



    The costumed characters in New York City and (as pictured) on Hollywood Boulevard in L.A. are constantly in the news for getting into fights with tourists, each other, locals -- pretty much anyone. They might have the highest crime rate of any individual population in the country. Like -- they get arrested more often than meth addicts, gang members or people who videotape the police arresting someone else. It's actually rather impressive.

  5. Snow White.



    I'm not sure what Snow White did to get a police escort out of Disneyland. I hope her judge is the fairest one of all. Ahem. Ouch. Sorry. What can ya do? I'm Sleepy right now.

  6. The Easter Bunny.



    I'm assuming this guy got pulled over because (1) his old timey car isn't street legal and (2) even if it were legal, it wouldn't be legal to drive it in a top-to-bottom bunny costume.

  7. Annie.



    Assuming this cop has a David Caruso-style wit, which one-liner did he go for as he removed his sunglasses: "It's a hard knock life for you" or "You'll get out of jail, tomorrow"?

  8. Banana.



    I guess it would just be a guy who, you know, grabs bananas and runs. Or a banana that grabs things. I don't know. Why would a banana grab another banana? I mean, those are the kind of questions I don't want to answer.

  9. Green man.



    The Green Man costume has become quite a popular outfit for football games -- it can help you get through some hard times -- but its popularity is with a particular demographic that finds a way to get arrested at football games. Primarily the demographic that smuggles whiskey into the game in a taint flask and is willing to fight anyone for any perceived transgression or affront, no matter how minor.

  10. Stormtrooper.



    Hey, at least if you're a Stormtrooper, the worst crime you can ever get arrested for is attempted murder.

  11. Baby bear.



    Full disclosure: I know there's not a guy in that bear costume. I just love this photo and if I don't use it here, I'm never going to get to use it in another list. It's a photo that needs to be seen.

    But I don't want to be accused of padding a 10-item list to 11, so here's a photo of the cops arresting a sneaker-wearing Hello Kitty who may or may not have been thinking of robbing a Bank of America (I don't know the back story).



    I still prefer the baby bear.
