Rock legend Bob Dylan was treated like a complete unknown by police in a New Jersey shore community when a resident called to report someone wandering around the neighborhood.
Dylan was in Long Branch, about a two-hour drive south of New York City, on July 23 as part of a tour with Willie Nelson and John Mellencamp that was to play at a baseball stadium.
A 24-year-old police officer apparently was unaware of who Dylan is and asked him for identification, Long Branch business administrator Howard Woolley said Friday.
"I don't think she was familiar with his entire body of work," Woolley said.
The incident began at 5 p.m. (2100 GMT) when a resident said a man was wandering around a low-income, predominantly minority neighborhood several neighborhood several blocks from the oceanfront looking at houses.
The police officer drove up to Dylan, who was wearing a blue jacket, and asked him his name. According to Woolley, the following exchange ensued:
"What is your name, sir?" the officer asked.
"Bob Dylan," Dylan said.
"OK, what are you doing here?" the officer asked.
"I'm on tour," the singer replied.
A second officer, also in his 20s, responded to assist the first officer. He, too, apparently was unfamiliar with Dylan, Woolley said.
The officers asked Dylan for identification. The singer of such classics as "Like a Rolling Stone" and "Blowin' in the Wind" said that he didn't have any ID with him, that he was just walking around looking at houses to pass some time before that night's show.
The officers asked Dylan, 68, to accompany them back to the Ocean Place Resort and Spa, where the performers were staying. Once there, tour staff vouched for Dylan.
The officers thanked him for his cooperation.
"He couldn't have been any nicer to them," Woolley added.
How did it feel? A Dylan publicist did not immediately return a telephone call seeking comment Friday.

Bob Dylan Retains Same Illuminati Law Firm as George W. Bush in Fifteen Year Plagiarism Law Suit.
Also suppresses Plaintiff’s First Amendment Rights acquiring a protective order designating all video taped depositions that are incriminating to Dylan confidential
Bob Dylan & his law firm acquired a confidentiality order in a fifteen year plagiarism law suit designating all discovery materials including fifty hours of incriminating video taped depositions as confidential suppressing Plaintiff James Damiano’s first amendment rights to warn the public of Judicial favoritism and corruption.
Camden NJ Aug 15, 2009 -Few artists can lay claim to the controversy that has surrounded the career of songwriter James Damiano. Twenty-two years ago James Damiano began an odyssey that led him into a legal maelstrom with Bob Dylan that, to this day, fascinates the greatest of intellectual minds.As the curtain rises on the stage of deceit we learn that CBS used songs and lyrics for international recording artist, Bob Dylan.
Bob Dylan’s name is credited to the songs. One of those songs is nominated for a Grammy as best rock song of the year. Ironically the title of that song is Dignity.
Since auditioning for the legendary CBS Record producer John Hammond, Sr., who influenced the careers of music industry icons Billy Holiday, Bob Dylan, Pete Seger, Bruce Springsteen and Stevie Ray Vaughan, James has engaged in a multimillion dollar copyright infringement law suit with Bob Dylan.
As per filed motions “It is judicially uncontested by Bob Dylan and or Bob Dylan’s law firms Manatt, Phelps & Phillips , Parcher Hayes & Snyder, Gibson Dunn & Crutcher, Heck Brown and Sherry and Sony House Counsel that Bob Dylan and people in Bob Dylan’s entourage have solicited James Damiano’s songs and music for over ten years and eleven months.
Interestingly enough District Judge Jerome B. Simandle states in his decision “This court will accept as true Plaintiff’s allegations that Sony represented to him that he would be credited and compensated for his work if Dylan used it. Judge Simandle also stated in his decision “Plaintiff has demonstrated a genuine issue of material fact as to whether defendants had access to his work.http://www.jamesdamiano.com/Richard Clarkuslawjournal@gmail.com
I went this summer (of 2009) to see Bob Dylan play in a concert with John Mellencamp and Willie Nelson. Having listened to all of his records day and night for months on end in the early days, I think I have an inkling as to whether he was there or not. I didn't notice Bob Dylan being at that event. It wasn't just that his voice was broken, which it (conveniently?) was. It was that nothing resembled his style and his articulation and phrasing had none of the artistry of the original.
As recently as a few months ago, during this event, I hadn't yet realized how common the practice was of replacing celebrities with phonies. So all I could conclude was deep pity for the horrible condition he was in, and shock that he would be in such despair to be forced to present himself in public in such shameful shape. It actually hurt to hear him sing, and nobody was dupe, not enjoying the concert or being moved by the songs. God save his soul.
I am willing to question anything: the existence of God, the existence of me or you or Robert Zimmerman. I am willing to wonder aloud whether any of this we experience here on Earth is real. What is there to be afraid of in questioning life itself? I know God is not afraid of my doubt. That is why He gave me the faculty to doubt, to overcome its mystique to better know faith.
I am sickened by the fob fylan "Christmas in the Heart"...bull sh*t...the real Bob Dylan would not do this...clips of fob in goofy xmas beard with people singing all around...big fan of the real live Bob Dylan!!! RIP? or hidden away for updating clones? ...

Dylan was replaced in late 1961 or early 1962. There's a YT video (as of now, they might take it off) of him performing A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall (1962) and it's his replacement. I can tell by the shorter, more square face (the real Dylan had a roundish, long, narrow face). And the singing style is TOTALLY different. The real Dylan gave more gritty performances.
Also, there's a YT video (as of now) of him in 1961 singing a song called Fixin' To Die. That's kind of a strange subject for a young fellow to be singing about, isn't it?
In the comments section for one of these vids, someone remarked that Dylan looks like Adam Sandler. Since I believe that many or most well-known performers are reincarnated beings, I wonder: - Doesn't or didn't Adam Sandler sing at his concerts, when he's given concerts?
"Weirdly, of the three of us, Lisa Ann knows the most about foreign policy." Tina Fey on Lisa Ann, the porn actress who has portrayed both Sarah Palin and herself.
Ok, u are keen on the reincarnation stuff, whatever... I think its more a question of DNA harvesting rather than reincarnation. Take a look also at actor JASON SCHWARTZMAN and singer ADAM LEVINE (both Jewish anyway, like DYLAN&SANDLER). Its DNA above all...
