Zopittybop-bop-bop faces drug charges in Iowa


Published:

MADISON, Wis. – A Madison man whose unusual name drew national attention last year after he was arrested for marijuana possession now faces drug charges in Iowa.

A Wisconsin State Journal report (http://bit.ly/1bGQdnt ) says felony drug charges have been filed against Beezow Doo-doo Zopittybop-bop-bop. The 32-year-old goes by Beezow.

He was arrested July 20 in Iowa’s Washington County. He remained in the county jail Saturday. He was booked into jail as Jeffrey D. Wilschke, which is the name on his driver’s license, even though he legally changed his name in 2011.

Online court records did not list a defense attorney Saturday.

Beezow was arrested for drug possession in Madison in 2012. That arrest brought national attention to his name, which became fodder for TV anchors and late-night talk show hosts.
