An Oklahoma City man who was seen standing in a burning laundry mat had some creative biographical details when caught by police. A woman went to close the laundry shop for the day around 11PM and found Thomas Ackerman standing inside. He asked her to light his cigarette and that is when things went downhill.
The woman said she would be back in 15 minutes. She came back to find the door locked and the building on fire. The woman’s husband hurriedly unlocked the door only to find Ackerman standing inside of the burning building. The man tried to get Ackerman to leave but he wouldn’t move, so they waited for the fuzz to get there.
When the police got there, Ackerman took the weirdness to the next level. He told the police that they needed to shackle his legs because his feet “were certified weapons in Nevada.”, and then he got creative. Over the next few minutes, he claimed to have seven college degrees and that he worked as a phlebotomist, stuntman, mixed martial artist, truck driver, architectural engineer, traveling disc jockey and a sex toy engineer.
He also claimed to work on three “Spiderman” movies and was the engineer responsible for designing Green Goblin’s hoverboard.
At that point, Thomas Ackerman was arrested.
