Don't come to your court-date in a lime-green Batman costume

Honestly, it should go without saying.

Mr Harley told Sheriff Kenneth Maciver he had no explanation for his client's absence, but added the last time they had met the man had turned up at his office wearing a "fluorescent green Batman" costume.

Mr Harley then pleaded guilty to the charges on behalf on 55-year-old Mount despite his client's absence from the court.
