SCHAUMBURG, Ill., March 22 (UPI) -- Illinois resident Slobodan Milosevic says it's tough to share a name with a dead Serbian dictator.
The Schaumburg man says it took his Croatian wife a month to give her relatives his name when they got married in 1993.
Then there was the time he got arrested for speeding -- going 107 mph in a Mercedes.
"In court, when the judge called my name, he said, 'Are you a president?' And I said, 'No.' He said, 'You drive like one,'" the Schaumburg, Ill., resident told the Pioneer Press.
When the former Yugoslavian president died earlier this month, Milosevic said: "My friends said I should send e-mails out to everyone saying, 'It's not me.'"
Has Milosevic ever considered changing his name?
"Yeah -- to Brad Pitt," he told the newspaper. "I'm always being screened at the airport."
