How Not to Celebrate the Holidays

As if 2005 didn't have enough lunacy

HARRISBURG, PA. Dec 29, 2005 (AP) A high school French teacher faces charges of assaulting a police officer and possession of illegal drugs after being arrested earlier this month while standing naked in the snow, police said.

Curtis Lofton, 23, was arrested Dec. 10 after police found him nude outside his home. When asked where he lived and why he was naked, Lofton said that he was Jesus Christ and that the officer must be God, according to court papers.

A scuffle broke out between the two men during which Lofton is alleged to have hit the officer over the head with a plastic toy trumpet he found nearby.

Lofton was charged with aggravated assault involving a police officer, resisting arrest, open lewdness, possession of a small amount of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and unlawful possession of the prescription drug Oxycodone.

Let’s review: A naked twenty-three-year-old French teacher, a Christ complex, a toy trumpet, Oxycodone, and the cops … oh yeah, and let’s not forget the snow. Because this story just wouldn’t have the same effect had it taken place in June. I mean, why would there be a toy trumpet on the lawn in June anyway??

It just doesn’t get any freakier. I bet his students are loving this.

Happy New Year, Curtis.

You think this is hilarious don't you? It's not. Mr. Lofton is one of the most incredible men alive. And to me he might as well have been Jesus. Ask anyone who's been taught by him; they'll say the same. It was absurd that this story was plastered all over the news, and even more sickening that poeple like you think it's some big joke to be laughed at. He's just a face in the news to you. It's unfortunate that you aren't lucky enough to know how amazing he is.
