A partygoer dressed as “Belligerent Drunk Man” was a hit at a Halloween bash until he started acting the part.

Wearing a blue sweatsuit, a belt of beer can pop-tops and a Superman-style emblem on his chest reading “BDM,” William A. Griffin got into a fight Sunday morning at an apartment complex, authorities said.

Joseph Gilliam, dressed as the Green Lantern, tried to break up the fight but ended up pushing a sheriff’s deputy, authorities said. Gilliam, 37, was charged with disorderly intoxication and battery on an officer. He was released on $753 bail.

Griffin, 26, was charged with disorderly intoxication and resisting arrest without violence. He pleaded no contest Monday and was ordered to pay court costs.

Not that deputies didn’t appreciate his outfit.

“It was the funniest, if not the most original costume I’ve ever seen,” Deputy Glenn Ward said.
