A resident called to report someone wandering around the neighborhood.
"I said what are you doing in the neighborhood, he said he was looking at a house for sale,'' she said. ""I asked him who he was and he said I'm Bob Dylan.''
Not believing him, Buble, 24, said she asked him for identification, which he did not have.
""I asked him where he was staying, he said a big hotel on the ocean,'' she said. ""I took that to be Ocean Place (Resort & Spa).''
Buble, a three-year veteran of the force, said she put Dylan in her patrol car, ""out of the pouring rain,'' and drove him to the hotel.
""I pulled in and there were two big tour buses in the parking lot,'' Buble said. ""I thought, 'oh, maybe you are Bob Dylan.' ''
Dylan was touring with Willie Nelson and John Mellencamp.
Buble said Dylan's manager, who was in one of the buses, identified him. His identity was later confirmed with his passport.
Buble said she knew who Dylan was, but did not recognize him on the street.
""We all got a laugh,'' she said. ""He didn't look like a famous person.''
Buble said she was not able to get an autograph.
""His manager cut off all communication,'' she said.
When Dylan wandered into the yard of a home that had a "For Sale" sign on it, the home's occupants became spooked by his appearance and called police with a report of an "eccentric-looking old man" in their yard, Long Branch Police said.
