Like a parody of the hippies worst nightmare Bob Dylan was not able to produce papers after committing the crime of walking down the street. AKA: Acting suspiciously. So he spent time in police custody in order to show his papers and apparently those papers are now needed to walk down the street.
Can you smell the freedom?
He has sold albums by the million and was the idol of the 1960s protest movement. But yesterday Bob Dylan discovered what it's like to be just a face in the crowd.
Police were called in a quiet seaside town after he was spotted freewheelin' down the street and apparently acting suspiciously. A 22-year-old female officer demanded to see his identification papers.
He assumed she would at least recognise the name if not the face. But she ordered him into the back of her car and took him to his hotel to check his story.
