N.J. Cops Called on Bob Dylan for Wandering Around Town

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

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 in nearby Lakewood.

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.
