Guam - He told police he was “The King of Siam.”

Just before his arrest on Tuesday, 26-year-old Robert Steven James walked out of the Maite Mobil gas station without paying for his bottle of Powerade.

When confronted by police, he stated he was the “King of Siam and that he was told by his lord and people that he was authorized to walk into any business establishment and take whatever he wants.”  

Court documents state that James became combative evident by his stance and clenched fists and that he began yelling that his ride was coming to pick him up.

As the officer attempted to restrain James, he reportedly punched the officer in the face before the two wrestled on the ground. With the assistance of a passing parole officer, James was restrained and handcuffed.

He was booked and confined for assault on a peace officer, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, and retail theft.
