WINCHESTER, VIRGINIA — An overly enthusiastic Joker cosplayer got nabbed by cops last week for wearing a mask in public.
Jeremy Putnam, 31, was allegedly wielding a sword and hauling it about in public.
Under Virginia state law, it’s a class-6 felony for an adult to wear a mask in public that’s punishable by up to five years in prison.
His buddies tell a different story. In a Change.org petition to set Putnam free, they claim he was carrying a cane and not a sword.
Putnam’s currently being held in an adult detention center on a $2,000 bond.
