Shelby Township police shut down M-53 last month as they tried to stop an intoxicated driver who was going the wrong way.

After field sobriety tests were administered, Batman was arrested. When troopers removed Batman from the patrol vehicle at the jail, they said they found a bag containing cocaine where he had been seated.

He is now charged with operating while intoxicated - third offense, possession of cocaine under 25 grams, open intoxicants in a vehicle, and driving while license revoked. His bond was set at $100,000 cash/surety
