Perth train station Joker’s dark past revealed
A man dressed as Batman villain The Joker who was arrested in Perth on Monday over a stunt has spent time behind bars after running down a group of teenagers, killing one, in 2004.
Balga man Reece Sturgeon, 38, has been charged with criminal damage and obstructing an officer after a stunt near a Perth train station where he was arrested over allegedly spray-painting part of a CCTV camera.
Officers found 12 spray cans in his bag.
But the man who has described his stunt as “prophetic art” has a dark past, having been convicted of manslaughter in 2006 after ploughing into a group of teenagers as they walked along Scarborough Beach Road in 2004.
