Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep with a continuing saga of Batman. We told you this week of a man scaling a hardware store in a Batman costume. Another man dressed as Batman got in a fight in Las Vegas. We don't know what started it, but video captured the action. Batman puts up his dukes. A tourist fights him, throws punches, then picks up Batman and body slams him on the sidewalk before walking off. The video's now on YouTube enhanced with graphics saying pow and slam.
