I Don’t Make Up This Stuff

For your edification, I offer this item from today’s news wire:

“September 5, 2011 (CHICAGO) (WLS) – In an unusual arrest, Indiana State Police say they picked up a shirtless man marching along the highway with a samurai sword. Troopers found the man just south of U.S. 30 on Interstate 65 in Merrillville, Ind., Sunday. The man was spotted near the area where a car was abandoned in the middle lane.

In a statement, police say the man was marching like a “drum major,” moving the sword up and down in rhythm with his marching cadence. When a trooper approached, the man reportedly swung the sword, then dropped it. Police say he also tried to get into an SUV that had stopped to avoid hitting the man and officers. Police say that after the man was taken into custody he gave troopers different names or addresses.

The man was taken to the Lake County jail on resisting arrest and other charges. He reportedly told police he was, “Cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs” but would not give his identity.”

My theory — sounds to me like police have apprehended a potential cereal killer.
