Man has assault conviction overturned

“Bipolar Oregon man was convicted of attacking hunter, said he was Sasquatch”

I am in no way belittling his bipolar disorder or his break with reality. The medical community well recognizes that to self-identify as a Sasquatch is evidence of a mental disorder. 

However, a man self-identifying as a woman is perfectly normal. 

Via the AP:

An appeals court overturned the conviction of an Oregon man with bipolar disorder who attacked a hunter while claiming to be a Sasquatch.

A statement Linus Norgren made to a deputy that he “was a Sasquatch and was from a family of Sasquatches” showed he was having a mental break from reality, the Oregon Court of Appeals ruled Wednesday.
