Woodbury man back on Minnesota soil


After nine months in a United Arab Emirates prison, a Woodbury High School grad who was detained for making a spoof video was freed this week.

Dressed in a navy blazer with long hair covering his eyes, Shezanne “Shez” Cassim landed in Minnesota Thursday, appearing significantly different from the video that put him in the maximum security prison.

The 2002 WHS graduate said he had no idea that “Ultimate Combat System: Deadly Satwa Gs” would have those repercussions.
