Cop mistakes Bob Dylan for a Homeless Man
While on tour last month with Willie Nelson and John Mellencamp, Bob Dylan decided to take a walk in the rainy town of Long Branch New Jersey before a show.
While wandering through the Long Branch neighbourhood, Dylan walked up onto the yard of a house that had a “for sale” sign, the residents of the house were still occupying the house and they called the police to report an “eccentric-looking old man.”
When a 24-year-old police woman arrived on the scene she did not believe it was Bob Dylan, put him in the back of her police car, and drove him to his hotel so he could prove his identity.
Not the greatest Idiocracy story, I know, I just got back from vacation and I am a little rusty. The story does provide me with a good excuse to post “Hurricane” by Bob Dylan.
