Cops Tase Jesus Christ on I-5 in Oregon

(Son Of) Man arrested on I-5 near Roseburg after disrupting traffic wearing only his underwear and socks

<snip>

State police say a 26-year-old Texas man, who identified himself as Jesus Christ, has been arrested after he was discovered disrupting traffic near Roseburg wearing only his underwear and socks. A state trooper found the man, who is believed to have a history of mental illness, after 12 p.m. moving towards passing vehicles near the southbound lanes of Interstate 5 near milepost 124.

The man, whose name has not been released, was able to evade arrest from the trooper for disorderly conduct, even after the trooper used a baton and pepper spray to try and subdue him.

A vacationing, off-duty Virginia police officer who was in the area and an officer from Roseburg soon joined the fray to help apprehend the man.

The Roseburg officer used a Taser on the man as the state trooper and Virginia officer put him in handcuffs.

Unfortunately, there is no photographic evidence other than what the cops might have. Kind of like the Resurrection.

4. Hey, that's MY Oregon yur talkin' about!!!

Hmmm. Tell me this?

How come "disrupting traffic" is ok for big-wig parades and motorcades of limos, full of fat cats..

But not for some random guy in his underwear and socks? I mean, after-all, this IS Oregon, home
of the hugest naked ride in history just the other day. And one must admit, he did show some restraint,
after all, he never even got totally naked.

On the other hand, I say if Jesus wants a second shot at it, what the hell do we have to lose at this point?
