"Higher" Education

Somehow, I forgot to include this nugget from the Boston Globe around Christmas time:
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.

The Central Dauphin School District would not comment on Lofton, a second-year French teacher.

Lofton's attorney, Terrence J. McGowan, said that Lofton's performance reviews have been excellent and that he had an impeccable record as a teacher.
