Cops Knew Batman Would Return

7/22/2008 11:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Just like the bat signal, coppers knew all along they could get Batman when they wanted him -- so they didn't arrest him until after his big premiere ... and the four press conferences he did before it.

So why did cops put a hold on busting Batman? They didn't think he'd flee.

Scotland Yard tells us after his mom and sis dropped a dime on Bale yesterday, the cops didn't jump because they felt Christian was not a flight risk. Also, they thought the crime was not super serious.

So, we're told, they waited until after "The Dark Knight" premiere to have him pay a visit to the station.

If it got bad enough for both mother and sister to call the cops, then they were in danger; if Mr. Bale remained free for film promotional reasons, then the mother and sister remained in danger. The fawning cops in London were criminally negligent. And probably took a hefty bribe from Warner Bros. Mr. Bale needs therapy, and doing a romantic comedy might help the Method actor chill out.

You could tell he was about to snap. I mean.. he wasn't very happy walking the red carpets. Maybe he realized he should have upped his pay for this film! That would make me snap too. I mean... what if he has only settled for a measley 15-20 million for this picture? Look what is about to make overall.

Calm down people. Bad publicity is still publicity. Obviously it was not that serious or the police would have arrested him right away and not waited until he got his movie whoring on. He is the biggest star in the world at this very moment. Did you really think that something was not gonna happen to spice things up?????
