Thundercat In Halloween Hijinks Bust

OCTOBER 31--Meet Will Johnson. The 21-year-old landed in a Savannah, Georgia lockup early yesterday for some pre-Halloween disorderly conduct. According to a police report, a copy of which you can find here, Johnson--who was wearing a blue leotard, orange wig, and face paint--was running into traffic and gyrating in front of oncoming cars. He was also screaming and cursing at motorists when they honked their horns. When a cop tried to stop the hijinks, Johnson initially escaped by hiding in a bar, though he was nabbed later when he the same officer spotted him again in traffic doing the grind. Johnson, a Savannah College of Art and Design student, apparently was dressed as Lion-O, a character from 'Thundercats,' a 1980s cartoon series. According to a 'ThunderCats' fan site, although Lion-O's 'body is fully developed, his mind is that of a child.' Seems about right.
