Better hold him for "Observation"

From AP, via Comcast:

Man Leads Chase, Claims He's Dick Cheney

STRATFORD, Conn. - A man was taken to Bridgeport Hospital for a psychiatric evaluation after he led authorities on a high-speed chase and then claimed to be Vice President Dick Cheney, police said.

John Spernak, 42, later admitted he wasn't Cheney but said he was actually "Charlie's Angels" star Jaclyn Smith, police said. He also claimed to be the husband of Paris Hilton's sister.

Sometimes you just have to make a decision on who you're gonna be - know what I mean dude?

Police said Spernak, driving at more than 90 mph Monday night, hit a patrol car and was shocked with a stun gun before they could arrest him. He was charged with attempted first-degree assault, engaging police in a pursuit, reckless driving, criminal mischief, interfering with police and being in a town park after dark.


  1. If he's claiming to be Dick Cheney then he's definitely mentally ill.

    Oh I don't know, lots of people claim to be the devil.

  3. It's a wonder he didn't claim to be the father of Anna Nicole Smith's baby. Everyone else is.

  4. Well, I was going to wait until Monday for my announcement, Kristi, but since you brought it up...

  5. I like the jump from Cheney to Jaclyn Smith! At least pick a gender for christs sake...

    As far as Ann Nicole Smith's baby, that is the Sargasso sea of DNA dontcha think?
