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.

    Nice. Gotta keep an eye on those “eccentric looking men”. Wonder what would have happened if it were Ozzy Osbourne?

    About Me

    I was born and raised in Peterborough Ontario, from there I've moved to London, Banff, Victoria and finally Qualicum Beach - I am confident I have found the best place in Canada to settle. I don't consider myself a writer, I only play one on the Internet - I started blogging years ago for my now-defunct website ThrowawayyourTV.com - Since then I've blogged for AOL and worked as a manager/trainer at Mahalo.com assisting writers in learning the ropes of Internet Research and web-writing. Away from the computer I work as a pay-on-call Firefighter here in town.
