If there's one thing 37-year-old alleged meth head Gerald Alfred Seyfried won't do, it's go quietly.

Seyfried got popped over the weekend after setting a fire on a sidewalk for no apparent reason. Rather than explain the situation to the arresting officers, he started a fight with them -- that only ended after he'd been Tasered...three times.

About 3 a.m. Sunday, Phoenix police officers were on patrol near 52nd Street and McDowell Road when they noticed a small fire burning behind a city bench. Parked in the street in front of the blaze was Seyfried's red Ford Mustang, which was still running, according to court records obtained by New Times.

Standing over the fire was Seyfried, who once he saw police, tried to stomp out the blaze. As officers approached him, though, he started backing away from the curious cops.

The officers told him to stop several times, but he refused.

"I didn't do anything," Seyfried told the cops while walking away from the fire he allegedly started.

One of the officers grabbed Seyfried's arm. Seyfried countered by pushing the officer to the ground -- and then going nuts.

The struggle between the officers and Seyfried went on for three minutes, and included three deployments of the officers' Taser into the back of the six-foot, 220 pound suspect.

Seyfried was finally taken into custody, and a search of his Mustang turned up two bags of crystal meth.

Seyfried was booked on two counts of aggravated assault on a police officer, one count of resisting arrest, one count of possession of a dangerous drug, and one count of reckless burning.

He doesn't have the look of a typical redneck tweaker, hence--"the Faces of Meth". It seems that he just started using the cracker's drug of choice. That zombie's gonna be put away for quite sometime. Those are severe charges pressed against him. What a fool.

So, I Made A Meth

Let's look at this sensibly.

Mr. Seyfried only started the fire to smoke his bowl of Meth., since his Bic lighter probably went dry on him. For the sake of safety he ignited behind a bench, so he's got that going for him. True, he could have driven to the Circle K for a new Bic since he did have his red Stang nearby, but hey, this is Meth we're talking about here, and it's important to get that pipe load lit up ASAP. When the cops happened by they saw a fire burning behind a bench, and got all nosey about shit like they always do. So this is really the cops fault. And at least Mr. Seyfried didn't ask the cops for a blow job like some people we know, so he's got that going for him.It's no reason for the coppers to get all wound up and taze the poor bastard.Mr. Seyfried should sue the city. Hell, with all the lunatic law suits clogging up the courts now, what's one more gonna hurt ? Like the Beasties Boys said... You gotta fight for right to party
