A man called Jackmeoff is arrested…

An American man from Florida with an unfortunate name…or a strong commitment to practical jokes…was arrested last week on a litany of charges in Fort Lauderdale.

Jackmeoff Mudd, 54, was arrested on charges of assault, disorderly conduct, resisting an officer, possession of alcohol in an open container, and violation of probation.

He is being held at a Broward County jail on a $300 bond, which means that at some point in the last few days, a somber county judge read his name aloud in court.

Mudd is not the first jailbird to have a strange name, of course.

In Wisconsin, police booked Beezow Doo-Doo Zopittybop-Bop-Bop for multiple charges.

And, believe it or not, I used to be in the same class as a boy called…wait for it…Tarzan Jenkins. I don’t know what he’s doing but if he had any sense, he’d have surely changed his name by now.
