Maine Man, in Joker Makeup, Charged with OUI
PITTSFIELD, Maine (AP) — Police didn’t need Batman to help them arrest the Joker in central Maine over the weekend.
A man returning from a Halloween party in full Joker makeup was charged with drunken driving after crashing his car in Pittsfield on Sunday morning.
Police say 64-year-old Dennis Lalime lost control of his car at about 2 a.m., then struck multiple trees and rocks before coming to a rest.
Lalime was uninjured.
The Morning Sentinel reports that a nearby homeowner heard the crash and called police, who arrested Lalime on an operating under the influence charge.
In his booking photo, Lalime’s face is painted white, with dark circles around his eyes, and his hair is dyed bright green, just like the Joker.
Lalime could not be reached.
