Spencer Taylor, a 20-year old from Three Rivers, Michigan, dressed up as The Joker and tried to steal a bunch of Dark Knight movie posters and cardboard cutouts at a local theater.
At the time of his arrest, Taylor was wearing a purple suit and had made his face up with white foundation and red lipstick to resemble the character played by the late Heath Ledger, who played the comic book villain in the blockbuster, before his untimely death earlier this year.
Police made Taylor pose for his mugshots both in and out off costume. He has been charged with larceny and malicious destruction of property.
Wow, way to suck, Spencer. On a related note, some guy dressed as the Dragon Emperor from the new Mummy movie stole a Brendan Fraser poster and everyone just felt sorry for him.
Hit the jump to see The Aborted Joker without makeup and a picture of the real one.
Thanks to Roger, who successfully stole posters dressed as Mr. Freeze
