Man in Joker costume leads police on chase, goes to the beach

LOS ANGELES, California (KTRK) -- Video shows the Joker almost get away, but this wasn't in Gotham. It was Los Angeles.

Police were after a man dressed like the Joker from Batman. The suspect was wearing a green wig and a clown mask.

Police said the man was seen driving recklessly Saturday.

In the video, you can even see him riding on the sunroof of a car while the passenger steers.

The clown eventually got out and ran to a nearby beach. He even helps bury someone in the sand before being taken down by officers as a large crowd gathers.

According to KCAL, police haven't said what charges he is facing.

Dressing as the Joker to commit a crime isn't something new.
