Jeremy Johnson is one of those human advertisements you see along the road — dancing and spinning a sign. He promotes a Quiznos sub shop in Kentucky. Johnson decided to give drivers a special show — dancing on the top rail of a bridge. Motorists mistook him for a jumper and they called police, who charged him with disorderly conduct.

RENEE MONTAGNE, host:

Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne. Jeremy Johnson is one of those human advertisements you see along the road dancing and spinning a sign - in his case promoting a Quiznos sub shop. Having become famous in Hopkinsville, Kentucky, he decided to give drivers a special show. So he moved his routine to the top rail of a bridge. Motorists mistook him for a jumper and called police, who charged him with disorderly conduct. Quiznos says he was just doing his job.

It's MORNING EDITION.
