The 34-year-old was seen tearing down fliers at Evergreen, located in Olympia. A police officer then chased him down and got into a scuffle him.
Zopittybop-bop-bop then allegedly tried to grab the officer’s gun and attempted to stab him with a pen.
The officer used a Taser but Zopittybop-bop-bop ran away. He then “retrieved a handcuff case and swung it like a hammer, causing a laceration on the officer’s head,” court documents said, according to the Tri City Herald. He then ran into a wooded area and threw a rock at a deputy.
The Evergreen officer was taken to Providence St. Peter Hospital, where he got a tetanus shot and four staples to close a cut on his head.
It’s unclear if Zopittybop-bop-bop was under the influence of drugs when he was arrested. He was listed as homeless, said the Herald.
Zopittybop-bop-bop was charged in 2013 for having more than a half-ounce of marijuana during a police search of his turquoise minivan in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. In 2012, he was arrested in Madison, Wisconsin, on drug charges.
A few years ago, he told the Wisconsin State Journal that his first name, Beezow, signifies “the explosion of awareness of the interconnectedness of the infinite love in the universe.”

And Doo-doo “is the struggle of our daily lives with that awareness, that with love comes chaos,” he added.
Meanwhile, Zopittybop-bop-bop also has personal meaning, which “is the outcome of that struggle, which is often ironic, especially because all life ends in death,” he said.
According to the newspaper, he was previously diagnosed with schizophrenia. However, he disputed the diagnosis and has refused treatment. In 2013, USA Today reported that he has been in and out of the mental health care system.
