US police officer doesn’t recognise Bob Dylan

Rock legend Bob Dylan was treated like a complete unknown by police in New Jersey when a resident called to report someone wandering around the neighbourhood.

Dylan was about a two-hour drive south of New York City in Long Branch on July 23 as part of a tour with Willie Nelson and John Mellencamp that was to play at a baseball stadium.

Long Branch business administrator Howard Woolley says a 24-year-old police officer apparently was unaware of who Dylan is and asked him for identification.

The singer of such classics as ‘Like a Rolling Stone’ wasn’t carrying any, so police took him back to his hotel, where tour staff vouched for him. No charges were filed.

How did it feel? A Dylan publicist hasn’t returned a telephone call seeking comment.
