Life ain't Kick-Ass: Wanna-be superhero gets arrested for prowling

As we get ready to watch Kick-Ass 2 this weekend to show us how to be a legit low-budget hero, one poor guy in Pennsylvania is out to remind the world that we can’t all be comic-book characters.

Aspiring caped crusader Todd Kapcsos of Pennsylvania went out on a recent night to hone his sneaking abilities and to keep an eye on his neighborhood. Turns out the high-crime area was more worried about the guy wearing all black prowling around trying out his “ninja moves.”

Here’s what a neighbor told a local media outlet, after spotting Kapcsos on patrol:

"It looked like he was trying to break into homes, not like he was trying to save the world. He was running like a ninja, not like a normal person jogging. He was going back and forth, creeping ... The ninja ran across the alley [that night] and ran into the arms of a police office.”

As for Kapcsos? Check out his hilariously awesome, and positively hapless explanation to a local media outlet:

"I dressed up in all black, snuck around, went through bushes. I was practicing some ninja moves -- ball, looking like a rock, just hiding in the shadows ... There's not enough police officers. I mean there's not enough [and] the community should do something rather than sit back.”

You’ve got to give the guy credit for trying to get out there and do some good, but you’d think he’d figure out those ninja movies before going out and looking for trouble. Sorry man, not everybody can be Kick-Ass.
