Panama City Beach, FL (The Weekly Vice) - Danny Zane Tatum, a 35-year-old Florida man was arrested Saturday after he allegedly burglarized a home and then proceeded to tell deputies he was like batman and that the hotel room he was staying in was his "bat cave".

According to the Bay County Sheriff's Office, a deputy spotted Tatum and his girlfriend inside a parked truck after a neighbor reported seeing a strange man lurking about the neighborhood.

When deputies inquired as to Tatum's business in the neighborhood, he reportedly said he was staying with a friend at a local hotel and that he considered that to be his "hide out" when he needed "to lay low."

When deputies searched Tatum's truck, they found a tote bag containing common burglary items, such as screwdrivers, a hacksaw, binoculars, black gloves and numerous knives. Bolt cutters and a pry bar were also discovered in Tatum's truck.

When the deputy inquired about the purpose of the items, Tatum reportedly said he was like Batman - listening to police scanners because he believed authorities needed his help.

He went on to tell deputies that he would listen to the scanner, and after a drug bust was made, he would wait until police left, break into the suspect's home and ransack the property. That's when deputies had heard enough to take Tatum into custody.

When the deputy checked out Tatum's story of living with a friend in a hotel, the hotel manager stated that Tatum was not a guest at the hotel. It also became evident that Tatum had snuck into an unoccupied room through a window - a suspicious that was also confirmed by Tatum's girl friend.

Tatums girlfriend told deputies that Tatum referred to the hotel room as being like his "bat cave."

Tatum was booked into the Bay County Jail on charges of Burglary and possession of burglary tools. Bond information was not available.

I know I'm stupid for saying this, but I honestly feel bad for the guy. When I was a kid I totally wanted to grow up to be some hero or villian in the batman world? It looked like fun... sometimes I'm still mad it never happened for me! However, I don't say that to officers while I have a bag of thieves tools in my car.

Ok first of all he must have been pretty stupid to go around robbing drug dealers, and then admitting to it. Did he think his crime was ok because he was robbing from criminals? Not only does he think he is bat man, he must think he is Robin Hood too!

Also, I can't believe this guy even had a girlfriend in the first place!!
