Michigan Batman Arrested, Two Fathers 4 Justice campaigners dressed as Batman and Robin were arrested today after mounting a rooftop protest outside the courts where Jason Hatch was attending a custody hearing with his ex-wife.
Avon and Somerset Police said two men were arrested at 10.30am on suspicion of aggravated trespass at Bristol County Court.
The police spokeswoman said they came down of their own accord just after the hearing began over Mr Hatch's custody over two children.
Mr Hatch staged a five-hour protest at Buckingham Palace last week.
Fathers 4 Justice founder Matt O'Connor said the campaigners scaled the walls of Bristol County Court at 3am ahead of Mr Hatch's appearance in the family court.
Mr O'Connor said: "They went up there in solidarity with Jason, they wanted to support his case.
"We are not going to stop our campaign of non-violent direct action until the law is changed and the courts start enforcing their own court orders."
On allegations published in the News Of The World yesterday, Mr O'Connor said Mr Hatch was maintaining a "dignified silence".
He said: "If ex-partners want to sell their soul and compromise our campaign, that is a matter they have to justify with themselves."
A skirmish broke out between police and around 20 Fathers 4 Justice campaigners outside the county court.
Campaigners claimed police were denying them access to a public building.
Five police officers blocked the entrance to the court while protesters sat on the doorstep.
Mr O'Connor was involved in the skirmish along with Fathers 4 Justice campaigner Andy James, 34, from Newport.
Mr James said: "They are not letting me enter the building. I want to get forms to apply to see my children. I have not seen them for three years and my wife wants to take them to another country."
Fathers 4 Justice campaigners waved banners and flags and hooted horns as 30 police officers attended the scene.
