Naked Iowan Said He Was Forced To Hold Nuke

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — A naked 41-year-old Iowa City man told deputies that he’d been forced by four men to handle a nuclear bomb at his home in Iowa City.

The Iowa City Press-Citizen reports deputies were dispatched to the area about 3:30 a.m. Monday.

They say they found William Bliss naked and showing signs that he’d been drinking. He told them he was forced to handle the bomb at his home nearby.

Deputies say he took off running when they tried to detain him. The Johnson County Sheriff’s Office says a deputy was injured during the chase.

A Johnson County jailer said later Monday morning that Bliss was still in custody. Online court records don’t list the case yet.

    Does this mean the sky is falling? Or, E.T. has come back with his in-laws?

    Boy – we had that kind of acid back in the ’60s but ….. it ain’t been that good since.
    terrible to be tripping in a cell….just not fun ;-)

        musta been cersion #4 or #5 as the frist time I enjoyed the stuff it was on blotter paper and about 1964 05 maybe 1965.
        Things got better as the next few years went on and then it surafced again several times.
        I highly doubt it was the same chemist involves . ;-)
        Last Christmas I visited an old friend who never made it back from ’69 – silly ‘shine sent her over the top. Today she’s in the county home. 43 years of DayTripping…don’t think the Fab Four meant it to mean that .
        enjoy but play safe I say.

          these typos are the credit of my spell checker – my heads clearer than that even today

        HA HA I remember that.

    I guess this proves ignorance is Bliss.

    • The Trend

      Very good…

  • BOB

    The Deputy must have tripped over his Johnson while in persuit.

  • eLew

    This guy probably started drinking on St. Patricks day and was still going strong!

  • Wobert

    Those headlines pulled me in to a dark place where I just wasted two minutes of my life.

  • Rizzo

    They were more worried about the Naked guy than they were the Nuke he kept yelling about that was in his house…

    • Crazy Joe

      I guess a naked guy is not much of a threat unless you are an unwilling vagina.

  • Deep Thinker

    I think a little group therapy & some hugs & kisses will help straighten this poor fella out. After all who hasn’t at one time or another held a nuke while you were naked.

  • The Gags

    They caught Andy……

  • Charlie Darwin

    Ah… we’ve always heard of warnings of the lone wolf with a nuke – never figured he’d be a naked dude in Iowa!!
