After getting the explanation of his name, it’s actually kind of poignant.

An Iowa man who had his name legally changed to Beezow Doo-doo Zopittybop-bop-bop is facing five years in prison after an arrest on drug possession charges.

Beezow, 32, was arrested on July 20 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, when police said they observed his turquoise minivan weaving between lanes. Police also reported finding more than a half-ounce of marijuana during a search of the vehicle.

Beezow, born Jeffrey Drew Wilschke, faces a felony charge of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, possession of drug paraphernalia and operation of a motor vehicle without registration.

This isn’t the first time Beezow has made national news. His name became fodder for late-night jokes when he was arrested in 2012 in a Madison, Wis., park on similar drug charges.

In an interview last year, Beezow told the Wisconsin State Journal that his first name represents “the explosion of awareness of the interconnectedness of the infinite love in the universe.” Doo-doo, he said, “is the struggle of our daily lives with that awareness, that with love comes chaos.”

And Zopittybop-bop-bop “is the outcome of that struggle, which is often ironic, especially because all life ends in death,” Beezow said.

According to the Journal, Beezow was previously diagnosed with schizophrenia but disputes the diagnosis and has refused treatment.

Beezow, who remains in Washington County Jail, is next due in court on Sept. 17.

      In Mississippi they would have put him under the jail for this.
      Psst, echar, this is really ittabena – NDAA put an end to ittabena, just don’t tell Steam.

    It is a sad state of affairs, but I can’t help but want a vid of the court proceedings when he is asked to state his name for the record.

    Wonder if he just says it or if he sings it like a little tune. :-)

    5 years in jail is bullshit, but still…seriously…lets not just blame the drugs. I’ve done wheelbarrows worth of pot back in the day, plus piles of psychotropics, contemplated my navel and its wondrous relationship with the universe, spanked my inner child and all that jazz…

    …and never even come fucking close to being that batshit off the wall crazy.

      It’s all for the shock and awe. That’s all it is. Iowa is a verrrry boring place!

  • Tishamingo

    As a former resident of Illinois – Iowa’s next door neighbor – I have to say that this man is not very bright. If he had done all this in WA, where I live now, he would not even be a blip on the radar. I mean, c’mon, hasn’t this guy seen Portlandia?
    Here what he has done would be termed fitting in. (I can’t wait to get to Thailand!)
