MAPLETON -- A man told police that he was both invisible and unstoppable after they chased him down Wednesday night.

Police were called about an assault Wednesday, and on their way to the call they spotted Adam Cowgill's car, the supposed assailant. During the ensuing chase, police witnessed Cowgill trying to punch the female driver.

After being stopped, the woman rushed from the car with a child, calling for help. Police arrested Cowgill there and took him to the hospital to be checked out. There, he informed police of his invisibility, and that he was unstoppable.

Despite the grandiose claims, Cowgil was later taken to jail.
