BEACON TRANSCRIPT – Because not every day we have the chance to meet our Lord and Savior in the flesh, here’s a story about a couple of South California cops literally had to chase Jesus Christ with their car just to have a ‘friendly’ chat. A man claiming he’s Jesus was arrested in connection with a hit-and-run accident on Sunday morning.
South Carolina Jesus Christ Was a Rare Coins Enthusiast, Police Declared
On Sunday morning, the South Carolina authorities were summoned to Garden City, near the Saint Michael’s Catholic Church, after another officer spotted a man fitting the description of a hit-and-run suspect. The individual was later identified as Joseph Kevin Crump.
According to the police report, once the officer spotted the suspect, he drew his service weapon, went to Crump and ordered him to stand down from his vehicle. However, instead of complying, Crump slammed the door and drove away, prompting the authorities to follow him.
The never-ending chase might be a symbol of faith, but the South Carolina authorities were pedal to the metal when chasing this guy. After several minutes of trying to fend off incoming vehicles and pedestrians, the officers were able to nab Crump after setting up a spike tramp.
After being taken into custody, the man claiming nothing more or less that he’s Jesus Christ. When the authorities asked the ‘Savior’ about why he was driving that fast, Crump told them that he thought that they wanted to kill him.
Crump was later taken to the emergency room, as he demanded medical attention. Inside his vehicle, the authorities discovered an undisclosed amount of cash and a collection of rare and valuable coins. Of course, Crump denied any of those things belong to him, as Jesus Christ doesn’t need cash or any kind of worldly possessions.
