Mr. Incredible Convicted Of Brawl With Bat-girl

A man who wears a Mr. Incredible costume to entertain tourists on Hollywood Boulevard was convicted Tuesday of punching and body-slamming a Batgirl-clothed woman during a fight last year.

Muhammet Bilik, 35, was convicted of battery and sentenced to a day in jail, three years probation, 20 days of Caltrans work and 36 anger-management classes in connection with the Oct. 22 attack that was caught on camera and uploaded to YouTube, according to the L.A. Times.

This was just the latest in a series of Hollywood Boulevard cartoon characters behaving badly, according to the L.A. Times.

Consider these incidents:

2005: Elmo, another Mr. Incredible and the villain from the “Scream” movies were arrested on suspicion of aggressive panhandling.

2007: LAPD officers arrested Chewbacca on suspicion of head-butting a tour guide. (Headline: “The Force Is All Over Chewbacca.”)

2009: Batman and Robin sought the help of police to deal with run-ins with CD vendors.

2011: SpongeBob SquarePants was questioned by officers after an altercation with two women.

2013: Two Captain Americas and a Spider-Man got into a brawl near the Hollywood & Highland shopping complex.

Attempted Bombing At NAACP Building In Colorado

According to the LA Times, a homemade explosive blew up on Tuesday outside the Colorado Springs, Colorado, chapter of the NAACP. The FBI has called it a deliberate incident.

The chapter’s offices, as well as Mr. G’s Hair Design Studios barber shop located inside the building, sustained minor damage from the explosion. No deaths or injuries have been reported.

Witnesses reported hearing a “loud boom” around 10:45 a.m. local time. “There was smoke everywhere, the building on the side was burnt,” one onlooker told local television station KDVR. The Los Angeles Times reports an improvised bomb appears to have been positioned against the outside wall of the building on South El Paso Street.

According to the FBI, it was set right next to a gasoline can, which didn’t burst during the explosion.
