You read that right, this is a real headline I did not think I'd ever write. It turns out that on June 4th, the Texas police arrested a man named Optimus Prime Blakely who was driving a stolen car in Austin. It turns out that Optimus Prime is indeed the legal name of the 37-year-old who has been charged with unauthorized use of a motor vehicle. Blakely is being held on an $8,000 bond.

Optimus Crime seems to be a pretender shell.

I wonder how many real people have legally changed their name to O.P.

I also wonder if The Onion has ever ran that same headline. I recall one about Bumblebee refusing to transform into his VW alt.

Not the first time an Optimus Prime has broken the law.

I know around the time of RiD back in 2000there was a real life firefighter who changed his name to Optimus Prime. Seemed like a fairly law abiding citizen though. Anyone who tarnishes the name by committing a crime Should automatically be forced to go back to their original name.

I remember back in the early 2000s a US soldier made headlines for legally changing his name to Optimus Prime.

Nope, Megatron didn't condone this either: https://twitter.com/Megatron_decep/stat ... 3012594883
People of Earth, today you must have woken up to the truth!
Please take a good look at this and see why we Decepticons are sometimes forced to act evil!

Yes, the Autobots were evil and the Decepticons were righteous!!!

He's actually a registered member here.

As for the subject of the article, I'm not surprised. At all. Basic behavior.
