Indiana judge chases man trying to escape courtroom in scene compared to 'Batman'

A judge in Terre Haute, Indiana took justice into his own hands and chased after a man trying to escape the courtroom, WTHI reports.

Anthony Williams failed to appear at this court date which was originally scheduled for Friday, June 15, so Judge Chris Wrede issued a bench warrant for his arrest.

Williams showed up to court on Monday, and Wrede told a security officer to take him into custody on the warrant.

Williams bolted toward the door, and Wrede chased after him. Witnesses say it looked like a scene from a Batman movie because Wrede was still wearing his black robe, and it billowed out behind him like a cape.

Williams crashed into a locked door, breaking the glass, before going out the other door.
