A motorcycle enthusiast, Busey was famous for not wearing a helmet. That would all change on December 4, 1988, when he got into a motorcycle accident and seriously damaged his skull in the process. Busey spent several months in physical therapy regaining control of his entire body, and hee suffered brain damage that weakened his mental filters. This went un-diagnosed by doctors for a long time, and the general view of him is that he's absolutely crazy. It's not an unfair assessment, any interview he gives is unsettling.
