A Miami man who resembles the Joker character from "The Dark Knight" was arrested again, one week after he was booked on gun charges.

Lawrence Patrick Sullivan, 29, was booked on a marijuana possession charge Wednesday.
 
Police responded to reports of a suspicious man loitering in a parking lot on the 15500 block of Southwest 106th Lane. When police officers approached Sullivan, they smelled a strong odor of marijuana coming from where the 29-year-old was sitting, according to an arrest report.

Officers said as soon as Sullivan saw them he tried to throw out a marijuana cigarette, Miami-Dade police said. He was charged with carrying cannabis 20 grams or less. Sullivan was being held on a $1,000 bond.
 
On May 23rd, Sullivan was arrested after an officer responded to the 15200 block of Southwest 104th Street for a report of a man with green hair and tattoos on his face who was pointing a gun at passing vehicles.

Sullivan, who was listed as a "tattoo model" on the arrest report, bonded out the following day. Clearly frustrated with the charges, he told NBC 6 he shouldn't have been charged with a felony because the gun is in his name.
