Man with incredibly weird name arrested in Wisconsin
Police in Wisconsin arrested a man for carrying a concealed weapon and while the arrest went rather smoothly, it was anything but ordinary.
That is because the man they arrested is named Beezow Doo-Doo Zopittybop-Bop-Bop.
According to the police report, officers found Zopittybop-Bop-Bop, 30, near tennis courts in a park after neighbours complained of excessive drinking and drug use.
Zopittybop-Bop-Bop was known to police after being arrested in April 2011 for carrying a concealed handgun. When officers approached, Zopittybop-Bop-Bop put his hands in his pockets, which put officers on alert as they arrested him.
He was charged with carrying a concealed weapon, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of marijuana and violating probation.
"While enroute to the Dane County Jail, Beezow Doo Doo Zopittybop-Bop-Bop told officers that he would 'Get even with them,' reads the report. "It is unclear what the suspect meant by his statement, but he was booked into the jail nevertheless."
According to Madison.com, court records show Zopittybop-Bop-Bop was previously named Jeffrey Drew Wilschke. it is unclear why he changed his name, but we wonder if he regrets it in light of a new study in the journal Social Psychological and Personality Science. It found people with weird names can face a lifetime of neglect, lower self-esteem, higher likelihood of smoking, diminished educational prospects and will have fewer relationship opportunities.
"It's remarkable that just a name can influence how your social environment reacts to you, and how this reaction can influence your life," said study co-author Wiebke Neberich to the Montreal Gazette.
Maybe Zopittybop-Bop-Bop was following in the footsteps or possibly setting the trend for sports stars Chad Johnson and Ron Artest changing their names to Chad Ochocinco and Metta World Peace respectively.
However, as he changed his name he can't blame his parents for any life outcomes. Some people who can blame their parents for their strange names are some kids of famous celebrities.
Victoria and David Beckham named their latest baby Harper Seven, Gwyneth Paltrow named her daughter Apple, Nicolas Cage (who changed his own last name from Coppola) named his son Kal-El after Superman, Jason Lee named his son Pilot, Sylvester Stallone named his son Sage Moonblood and the most recent is Beyonce and Jay-Z naming their baby girl Blue Ivy Carter.
