Irony, thy Name is Victor Willis


Just laugh with me: The cop from the Village People was arrested this week.

From the San Fransisco Chronicle:

South San Francisco police have arrested Victor Willis, the original policeman from the Village People disco group, who has been wanted for months in connection with possessing cocaine, a probation violation and other charges.

Authorities said today that Willis had been arrested after the car in which he and a woman were driving was stopped Sunday by Officer Ivan Delacruz on the 700 block of Airport Boulevard. Neither Willis nor the woman had proper identification, and both had cocaine and drug paraphernalia, police said.

The man didn't give his name, but was later identified as Willis through fingerprints, police said.

Willis co-wrote such hits as "YMCA" and "In the Navy" in the 1970s. He entered a plea bargain on the cocaine-possession and other charges in early September that would have resulted in a prison term of no more than 16 months, but he never showed up for sentencing and has been wanted ever since.

Willis' case has received national attention from the television show "America's Most Wanted," which did a story on him.

Lord. There really are no words. The story writes its own jokes.
