Police: Sexton lay in street, called himself God

It Looks like Bobby's trying to recruit help for this year from a higher source...

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Suspended Florida State quarterback Wyatt Sexton was doused by pepper spray and taken to a hospital by police after he was found lying in the street and identifying himself as God.

Sexton was hospitalized Monday night. A school official said Tuesday he was still under medical care at an undisclosed location. Sexton had not been charged with any crime.
Florida State assistant athletic director Rob Wilson said Sexton was suspended from the team two weeks ago because of a previously undisclosed violation of team rules. He declined to elaborate, and said this incident appeared to be unrelated.

Sexton, 20, is the son of Florida State's assistant head coach and running backs coach, Billy Sexton. Wilson said neither head coach Bobby Bowden nor Sexton's father would comment.

Sexton, who will be a junior in the fall, took over the starting job for the Seminoles at midseason last year. He was expected to compete for the spot this year with Drew Weatherford and Xavier Lee, who were redshirted as freshmen last year.

An incident report by Tallahassee police officer Zachary Lyne said he was called to a residential neighborhood about reports of a man doing push-ups in the street and jumping on a car.

Lyne said he found Sexton in the middle of the road wearing only a wet pair of shorts. The officer asked Sexton several times to identify himself, and eventually he said he was God.

Sexton later got on his hands and knees, yelled obscenities at the officer and stared at him. He was doused with pepper spray and handcuffed, and identified himself as Sexton.

Police said Sexton "appeared to be under the influence of some unknown narcotic or alcohol." Hospital officials said they didn't have any information on him.

Once at the hospital, Sexton continued to say he was God and that he didn't know why he was in the hospital, Lyne wrote.

Police said Sexton's roommates told them he had been at a Dave Matthews Band concert in Tennessee with them earlier Monday. They said he had been stressed out over trying to win the starting quarterback job.

And so the quarterback tradition @ FSU continues. Xavier Lee would have beat him out for the position anyway.

Leave it to the Criminoles.

When I was in college in Florida, a similar thing happened to a buddy. He took mushrooms and didn't sleep for a couple days. Next thing I know he's on the phone trying to get on Letterman, and he kept referring to himself as God. Some bible thumpers randomly came up to him at a gas station and asked him if he knew Jesus Christ. He calmly said, "Of course I do, he's my son."

Anyway, turns out he's bi-polar and the mushrooms just helped move it along a little quicker than it would have normally taken.

Dave Matthews concert = hippies = halucinogens.
