Atheist Attacks Roommate He Thinks Is Jesus

Gustav PotthoffORLANDO, FL (April 7, 2014) — A Florida man attacked his roommate earlier this month with a glass cup and a butter knife—all because the man thought his roomie was Jesus.
According to the arrest report, on April 7 the victim went to the kitchen to get a drink of water.
That is when the self-proclaimed atheist Gustav Potthoff, 51, threw a glass at him then went after his roommate with a butter knife.
Potthoff denied the whole affair at first but after changing his story several times, finally confessed, the report said.
When he faced a judge last Tuesday, Potthoff allegedly demanded an atheist lawyer.
“It’s just my human rights and everything else. I’m allowed to be with someone of my own kind,” he said.
The judge denied his request and Potthoff responded with, “It’s a sacrilegious thing.”
He was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
But this is not Potthoff’s first criminal encounter.
Last May, reports say he was arrested after calling in a fake bomb threat to the Secret Service.
He allegedly told police that he made the threat because he felt people in general, but family members and attorneys in particular, would not leave him alone.
