Zorro appeared during the evacuation at Los Angeles International Airport on Sunday night, and he didn’t receive a hero’s welcome.
Instead, officers with guns drawn ordered the unidentified man, who was dressed in a Zorro costume complete with plastic sword, to get down on the ground.
LAX confirmed that the man had been apprehended.
The man was reportedly just an actor in the wrong place at the very wrong time. He told CBS in Los Angeles that he had just come from an audition and was waiting for his ride. He didn’t have time to change out of his costume, the station said.
“The next thing I know, [the police are] all over me,” he said.
Next time, dude, put away the getup.
