Police rescued a man wearing a Batman suit April 1 after he called for help inside a grocery store.
And no, it wasn't an April Fool's Day joke.
Officers arrived at a business in the 6900 block of East Main Street at 7:27 a.m. April 1 after a man called about a possible drug overdose. He told officers he had snorted either "ecstasy or meth" and might be having a bad reaction to the drugs.
The reporting officer said the man was wearing a Batman suit but was cooperative and was able to answer questions.
West Licking Fire Department medics transported the man to Mount Carmel East Hospital.
