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.

This event would be much different, as the police chose to escalate the situation by violently assaulting multiple individuals and even resulting to kidnapping two of the event’s speakers. Adam Kokesh was giving the final speech to the crowd and before you could properly finish a Parks Police and Fish and Wildlife officer grabbed Adam (who had yet to engage in cannabis reflection that day) and took him while with the microphone still in his hand. Adam was taken away to a local Philadelphia jail and then was moved to Federal Detention Center Philadelphia where he would spend right under a week locked in a cage for not committing a crime.… Read the rest
