South Brunswick police said they responded to the Motor Vehicle Commission office in Dayton about noon Feb. 2 on a report of a man refusing to remove the pasta strainer from his head to take his driver's license photo, NJ.com reported Wednesday.

The man, Aaron Williams, 25, said the pasta strainer was a religious head covering as he practices Pastafarianism, the religion of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster.

The satirical religion is a movement opposed to the teaching of intelligent design and creationism in schools.

Williams reluctantly agreed to have his picture taken without the strainer and deleted a video he had taken in violation of office rules.

Austrian Niko Alm, who described himself as a Pastafarian, won a three-year battle in his country to have his driver's license photo taken with a pasta strainer on his head.
