It is later used against him that he was seen directly afterwards picking up the goblet of poisoned wine and pouring the contents out onto the ground, as well.

** This inadvertently happened to his wife Laura several years prior. After being insulted by local pariah Damien Smith, Laura grabbed a baseball bat and tried to swing it at him, only to be stopped by Luke. Later that day, someone picked up that very same bat and used it to bash Damien's head in. As the person was wearing gloves, the only fingerprints to be found on the bat were Laura's, resulting in her being charged with his murder.

* In ''Film/BeverlyHillsCopIII'', [[EddieMurphy Axel]] is meeting with Uncle Dave, when he's interrupted by the BigBad, who shoots Dave (he gets better). He then hands the gun to Axel, who is initially reluctant to touch the weapon. The guy just shrugs and points out that the weapon belongs to Axel, so his prints are on it anyway. Axel manages to run away before he's shot.

* Being a parody of Batman, it's fitting that ComicBook/{{Rat-Man}} does it in a Marvel crossover... ''twice''. First by "securing" the weapon used to kill an old {{Punisher}}'s relative, just in time for the latter to see him. After several pages of dodging bullets, he manages to escape only to "secure" a metal pipe used to beat a certain "Mrs May". Seconds before {{Spiderman}} enters the scene.
