Due to the beautiful weather yesterday afternoon, John decided it was perfect to go canoeing. Just not in the right place.
John was arrested for trespassing and resisting arrest. Police say John might not be aging so well and due to very old age, he simply mistook the ditch with water in it as the sheyenne river. Simple mistake.
John did put up a fight though. He refused to get out of the canoe. Police had no choice but to taze him 3 times and break both legs just to subdue him. It then took ten punches to the face and a visit to his house to shoot his dog. The police did say they felt all was finally safe and to proceed to bring him to jail for prosecution.
Police would like to remind the public that it is illegal to canoe in public ditches and law enforcement will keep an extra eye out there for potential offenders.
