We can’t make this type of stuff up, folks. Former NFL linebacker Kevin Ellison has had some difficulty battling his mental demons. The other day he set his bed on fire with a marijuana blunt then jumped out of his third-floor apartment window.

When questioned, Ellison said God told him to do it.

According to court documents, Ellison was at the hospital when he told Spokane Valley Deputy Fire Marshal Clifton Mehaffey that he’d set the fire with a cigar “because ‘God’ had told him to set the bed on fire.” Mehaffey said Ellison stopped talking to him after he called a family member and was advised to get a lawyer.

Wow. Just wow.
