Man Tells Lufkin Police to Release Him Because He’s Jesus
Anyone who has been in law enforcement for a few years will tell you that they have heard the gamut of excuses and reasons why a suspect should not be arrested.
Add one more to the list.
According to a report from the Lufkin Police Department, Darion Amie, 22, was arrested after officers were called to a home on North First Street late Monday night because Amie was trespassing there. When officers tried to arrest him for trespassing, he resisted and told officers several times that he was "Jesus" and that they would have to let him go. After a struggle, officers got him into custody.
On the way to jail, Amie went from talking about how he hated one of the officers to how rich he was, how he had a pretty girlfriend and again, how he was Jesus. He also said his birthday out loud several times and told the officer that if he would add up the numbers, the officer would know that Amie was the actual Jesus. While pulling up to the jail, Amie told the officer that when the doors opened, it was going to be on.
