How many times have we seen Bruce Wayne, in one identity or another, get arrested by the cops?

I'll take anything -- comic book stories that are "in continuity," comic book stories that are "out of continuity," TV episodes, movies, anything that's been "officially" released as a Batman adventure. (No amateur fanfics, please!) As long as he was actually arrested and taken into custody! Whether the cops thought they were arresting "Bruce," or "Batman," or someone else entirely because he was using another alias!

Note: I'm not counting all those times when the police issued an All-Points Bulletin for Batman and chased him around the city but totally failed to apprehend him. For instance, in the movie "Batman Begins" the police tried to chase him when he was cruising around in his Batmobile, but a fat lot of good it did them. If they had ever managed to grab him and lock handcuffs on his wrists, I would count that as a real arrest, however -- even if he'd escaped from the handcuffs two minutes later! \:\)

To start the ball rolling, I'll mention a recent example of what I'm looking for.

A few years ago we had the big "Bruce Wayne: Murderer?" event. He actually ended up being indicted, tried, sentenced, and convicted on a charge of murder in that one, and spent time in prison. (It was made clear to the readers that Bruce figured he could escape from his cell and make a clean getaway at any time, but he simply didn't bother until after it became clear that other prisoners were being bribed to kill him.)

I can think of several other stories that would qualify, but I'll shut up for now and leave it to you to help compile a list!

Shadow of the Bat #1-4. Batman was arrested for manslaughter, after appearing to kill a high ranking cop by accident when he punched him in an argument. Batman was sent to Arkham. It was a ruse, the death was faked, and Batman needed to get into Arkham to figure out how someone was getting in and out to murder people.
