MIAMI, FL (WWSB) - A man closely resembling the Joker character from "The Dark Knight" was arrested by Miami-Dade police Tuesday night.

Police say he was waving around and pointing a loaded gun at passing cars.

Lawrence Patrick Sullivan, 29, was arrested on a charge of carrying a concealed firearm, Miami-Dade Police said. Officers responded to the report which described a man with green hair and tattoos on his face who was pointing a gun at passing vehicles.

The officer spotted Sullivan walking out of the front gates of the Hammocks Place Apartments. He patted Sullivan down and found the firearm, a Smith & Wesson handgun with six rounds in the magazine, in Sullivan's pocket, the report said.

Sullivan, who was listed as a "tattoo model" on the arrest report, was booked into jail where he was being held on $5,000 bond Wednesday, jail records showed. Attorney information wasn't immediately available.
