He's not the brightest star in the Solar System.

Brett Eric Drachenburg, 51, is accused of stealing a towel, then trying to disguise himself as "The Sun," the Northwest Florida Daily News reported.

Drachenburg allegedly entered a private home in Walton County, Fla. and proceeded to steal a towel. According to an arrest report obtained by The Huffington Post, Drachenburg "did unlawfully deprive the owner of the use of the towel."

When deputies were investigating the incident, Drachenburg was "disguising himself as 'The Sun' with the intent to obstruct the due execution of law."

The report does not specify how Drachenburg attempted to pull off such a deception.

Additionally, it is unclear whether or not the man was trying to pass as the actual sun, or as a copy of a publication, such as the Sun Sentinel, which might be referred to as "The Sun."

When queried about these two matters, a spokeswoman for the Walton County Sheriff's Office told HuffPost that “"[It looks like] "The Sun” ... is the name he gave for himself to the deputy."
