The Joker got busted. But the Caped Crusader didn’t take him down, Miami-Dade police did.
Lawrence Patrick Sullivan, 29 — whose green hair and tattooed face bears a striking resemblance to the Joker in the Batman movies — was stopped by police Tuesday night outside the Hammocks Place Apartments in West Kendall.
In his pocket: a loaded Smith & Wesson handgun with six live rounds.
People called police earlier in the day to alert them of someone looking suspiciously like the Joker who was pointing a weapon at passing vehicles. Police found Sullivan just outside the apartment complex at 15200 SW 104th St.

His arrest affidavit says that when police patted him down, he told them, “I have a gun in my pocket.”
Asked for a concealed weapons permit, Sullivan replied: “I don’t have a permit ’cause it’s expensive,” his arrest report says.
On Wednesday morning, Sullivan was charged with carrying a concealed firearm. He was booked into the Turner Guilford Knight correctional center, and his bond was set at $5,000.
Sullivan’s arrest affidavit lists him as a “tattoo model.”
