[QUOTE]REDWOOD CITY, California (AP) -- The reigning Mr. Universe faces assault and resisting arrest charges following a run-in with police who mistakenly believed the diabetic bodybuilder was intoxicated.

Doug Burns, 43, was sprayed with Mace and wrestled to the ground by officers who were summoned to a movie theater Sunday night by a security guard, authorities said.

Burns, who was trying a new diabetes drug that night, said Monday he was preparing to see a film when he felt dizziness and poor vision -- a sign of low blood sugar -- and hurried to a snack counter.

The security guard noticed Burns' strange behavior and asked him to leave, thinking he was intoxicated, Redwood City Police Capt. Chris Cessina said.

When officers arrived, Burns allegedly lunged at one of them, pushing him to the ground with both hands, and took a fighting stance, Cessina said. Burns continued being combative until four officers wrestled him down, the captain said.

During the scuffle, the officers did not notice Burns' Medic Alert bracelet. An on-scene medical test later confirmed that Burns had low blood sugar during the incident, Cessina said.

Despite the misunderstanding, Burns was charged with misdemeanor assault and resisting arrest.

"The fact is Mr. Burns assaulted our officer," Cessina said. "If he had just stood there and let us help him, maybe they would have called the medics if he didn't seem to fit the description of being under the influence."

Burns, a board member of the American Diabetes Association who often speaks to raise awareness about the condition, said he doesn't remember the incident clearly.

"I could understand if I was belligerent or had track marks, but I was nicely dressed and I don't think I fit the profile or smelled like alcohol," Burns told the San Mateo Daily Journal.

A court date has not yet been set in the case.

Honestly I can't see him being charged with anything. Why you may ask? Simply put, diabetics who are experience a low or high blood sugar cannot think logically, I being one myself can testify for that. When a diabetic is low or high they are very easily angered and cannot think very clearly at all.

Once again logic has a hard time working when you are low or high, getting combative is easily done if they are angered. Now do I believe he knocked two of them down or it took 4 or 5 for them to bring him down? **** no! If he was that low he would not be able to use alot of force behind anything, it would make him go lower even if he is Mr. Universe.

I doubt anyone would expect him to remeber anything, diabetis can **** with your mind when you are low. Hell I have seen **** when I have been really low. I can see him getting off on some medical technicality due to being low and not in a right state of mind to make responsible decisions. And I hope this doesn't make him lose his title, it isn't like he was on drugs or drunk at the time. Just his blood sugar droped and he wasn't thinking clearly.
