Things were just a little bit batty in Hampstead this weekend.
In addition to responding to the usual fender-benders, smashed mailboxes and minor shoplifting offenses, troopers from the Westminster state police barracks were called about a bat hanging around a MOST bank machine in Hampstead.
The bat had flown away by the time troopers responded to the call.
"You know there's something wrong with a bat if it's flying around in the daytime," said a police spokesman with a laugh.
