Portland has some weird people.

January 4, 2007

I didn’t know people still watched soap operas, but I guess they do.  Thing is, I don’t know if Carl Cheney likes soaps or if he think’s they’re the devil’s doing.  From KGW:

LOS ANGELES – A Portland man is accused of trying to perform an exorcism on a soap star.

HogestynTMZ obtained a copy of the restraining order filed by Drake Hogestyn (pictured), who has played John Black for more than 20 years on “Days of our Lives.”

The actor says he was in his yard with his children on New Year’s Eve when Carl Cheney ran onto his property with a Bible and screamed, “Where is he, I will cast him out!”

Cheney was reportedly using Hogestyn’s stage name and recalling past storylines from the NBC soap opera.

Cheney was released Thursday morning from the Los Angeles County Jail. He has a February court date.

This guy has issues.  According to this site, the soap star and his son wound up duct taping Cheney’s wrists and ankles until the police came.  Was it worth the trip to L.A.?

    Elderly people who watch too much TV have been known to get them confused with reality, no surprise your garden variety kook sometimes does the same. Hell, I knew someone who thought the WORLD was black and white until it mysteriously changed into colours for some reason in the fifties. He wasn’t the smartest ant at the picnic. JMO —Doug
