  • "Jesus Christ" decided to try and rob a Wells Fargo last week.

Apparently, Jesus is in San Francisco. A 26-year-old woman claiming to be the messiah is currently a suspect in an attempted bank robbery.

San Francisco Police arrested Drusilla Holmgren, also known as Jesus Christ, in relation to a suspected robbery, where she walked into a Wells Fargo bank last week and passed a note to a teller stating she had a gun.

Holmgren was then arrested on Tuesday when police rushed to an alley South of Market after concerned residents reported that a woman was naked in the alley way; police found her trying to put on a nightgown.

Holmgren told officers that she had been smoking methamphetamine all night and believed she was Jesus Christ.

Medics were then called to assist Holmgren, and after she was placed on a gurney an officer recognized her tattoo from the security video of the bank robbery. Ironically, it was a tattoo praising Satan (666) that gave Jesus Christ away.

She was booked into County Jail after being cleared by hospital staff, and SFPD says she is still being held there. According to SFPD, at the time of her arrest she was listed with a S.F. address, but no other details are known.

Holmgren is continuing to receive mental health care and is being held without bail due to an existing probation on felony charges.

She is scheduled to appear in court Oct. 2 on a motion by the prosecution to revoke her probation. That is of course, if she doesn't resurrect out of jail before her court date.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
