Former NYU math teacher Hans Shmidheiser (which sounds like a name you would make up when put on the spot) got arrested Friday for going on a rampage of eccentricity in Williamsburg. From NY Post:
Hans Shmidheiser, 30, approached a man walking his dog in Williamsburg around 8 a.m. on Friday, picked the pup up and asked it, “What the f–k is your name?” sources said.
The terrified owner fled and called cops.
An hour later, Shmidheiser — who taught at NYU from 2004 to 2008 while getting a Ph.D. in math — walked up to a female pedestrian. “He said he wanted to go to the hospital because he was drinking a lot of blood,” she told The Post.
Shmidheiser then doused the poor woman with red liquid and told her it was blood, according to sources.
It turns out the liquid was just fruit punch, she said.
Let’s not overlook the jerk of a dog who could have prevented the whole ordeal by simply telling Hans his name.
