A 29-year-old man by the name of “Shelby Mustang GT 500 Miller” was arrested in Baxter County, Arkansas Friday on suspicion of driving with a suspended or revoked license, no proof of insurance, and not wearing a seatbelt, according to CBS affiliate KFSM out of Fort Smith, Arkansas. The ironic part: police noted that the man was not driving a Shelby GT500 Mustang.
Shelby Mustang GT 500 Miller was released from the Baxter County Detention Center on a $450 bond, KFSM reports. We have to wonder whether that bond was posted by his friends “Mark I Ford Escort Jordan” and “Lifted F-150 On 20-Inch Mickey Thompson Wheels Smith”.
It’s shocking to think that there are people in the world with legal names taken from cars with alphanumeric monikers, but here we are. It’s quite possible that “Shelby” was the man’s (perfectly ordinary) given name at birth, and that “Mustang GT 500” is a middle name either chosen at birth by his parents, or selected by the man himself after he came of age.
Either way, it takes a serious level of fandom to select a name like that.
This is not Shelby Mustang GT 500 Miller’s first run-in with the law; according to Fox News, in 2014, the man was arrested in Des Moines, Iowa after getting into a heated argument at a bar, and later returning with an ax. Reportedly, he was booked for public intoxication, being armed with intent, and violating parole.
Unless that was a completely different Shelby Mustang GT 500 Miller, that is.
