Dane County Sheriff's Office, Mug shot of Beezow Doo-Doo Zoppitybop-Bop-Bop.
Days after a Tennessee judge made news for changing a baby's name from Messiah, another man with a name to remember is making headlines.
The Madison, Wis., man who gained widespread attention after legally changing his name to Beezow Doo-doo Zopittybop-bop-bop in 2011 has been arrested in Iowa on drug charges, according to the Wisconsin State Journal.
Beezow, as he is commonly known, was arrested July 20 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, when police noticed his turqoise van weaving along the road, Yahoo! News reports. When they stopped him, police found half an ounce of marijuana, Yahoo! reported.
Beezow, whose given name is Jeffrey Wilschke, was charged with felony possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, possession of drug paraphernalia and operation of a motor vehicle without registration, the Wisconsin news organization reported, based on information obtained from a jailer and the Iowa court system.
The Iowa Judicial Branch online system lists four cases involving Beezow/Wilschke but -- as with all its cases -- it did not give details.
Beezow became famous in January 2012 when he was arrested for marijuana possession in a Madison, Wis., park and his unusual name attracted attention from all over the world.
The public made light of the name, but a closer look into the man's life by the Wisconsin news organization revealed a sadder story. Beezow has been in and out of the mental health care system and diagnosed with schizophrenia, which he disputes, the State Journal reported. He has said that he suffers from depression and post traumatic stress disorder from the abuse he suffered on the streets while homeless.
Beezow has said his name represents, in part, "the explosion of awareness of the interconnectedness of the infinite love in the universe."
Beezow has a trial scheduled for Sept. 17 on the felony charge, the State Journal reports. He could face up to five years in prison and $7,500 fine.
