Man in Joker makeup arrested at Florida theater

Source: CNN

Police arrested a man wearing "Joker" makeup at a Florida movie theater Wednesday after someone reported the man acting suspiciously, the Melbourne Police Department said.

When police arrived at the Premiere Theatre, they found 21-year-old Christopher Sides with his face painted like the Joker from the Batman movies and his hair dyed pink.

They discovered a warrant for his arrest for failure to appear on a previous misdemeanor charge and took him into custody, police said.

The incident caused extra concern because of the July shooting at a Colorado movie theater in which suspect James Holmes, with his hair dyed various shades of orange, identified himself to police as the Joker. The shooting happened at the premiere of the latest Batman movie and left 12 people dead.

1. Was he also arrested for not knowing what the Joker looks like?

Note to all future Joker impersonators: his hair is green.

2. Green!

Maybe you could stretch it to orange. Cesar Romero's green hair often appeared orange in photographs, for some reason. But it was green.

I guess these people who are supposedly dressing up as Joker simply aren't Batman fans.

3. Doesn't look like the Joker. Did the guy say he was supposed to be the Joker?

He looks like someone in bad makeup and a pink wig.
