This Dallas, Texas man has either watched the ‘Petoria’ episode of Family Guy or is a fan of pro-Russia rebels in eastern Ukraine ‘cos he was arrested after shooting at police and, like Peter Griffin, declaring his own ‘country’ of ‘Dougiestan’ on U.S soil.
According to Dallas Police, Douglas Leguin, armed with an AK47 gun and several propane explosives, tried to occupy a house in North Dallas on Monday to make it his newly-formed country’s headquarters. His wife had alerted police earlier in the day, reporting that her husband was missing, along with the rifle and several tanks of propane in his garage.
In response, police first sent firefighters to the scene … but Leguin opened fire on them, hitting their truck at least twice. When cops finally arrived, he tried to ambush them, but later fled into the woods.
Apparently, that was where he called 911 from to declare his secession from the U.S because of the country’s ‘sorry’ government.
Introducing himself as ‘Dougie Doug’, Leguin told the 911 operator, ‘I’m Dougie Doug and I just seceded from the nation.’
‘I’ve seceded from the nation. This is now Dougiestan right here,’ he added.
‘I’m pissed off at America. America is broke. It’s got a sorry government and the people won’t vote,’ Leguin also said, accusing police of ‘shooting the mentally handicapped.’ When asked by the operator whether he was mentally handicapped, he replied, ‘I have a clear mind and a full heart.’
The ‘sovereign citizen’ later surrendered to police, who charged him with 7 counts of ‘aggravated assault on public servants’. He is being held on a $350,00 bail.
Police are also investigating Leguin’s anti-government views. Local reports say he even hoisted a ‘Dougiestan’ flag on the roof of his home in Corinth.
