This is almost too weird for words...

(for the firewalled...)

NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) - Metro police say they've never encountered a man quite like William Todd, who they say in just nine hours managed to wreak havoc on Nashville.

"He was just on a terror. I've never seen anything like this before," said Sgt. Tony Blackburn.


Police said Todd traveled to Nashville on a Greyhound bus. During his nine-hour layover, officers said he committed more than 10 felonies.

Officers said Todd broke into the Slaughterhouse and stole a Taser, revolver and shotgun. Then, they said he shot the business up, stole a T-shirt and set the business on fire.

Police said Todd then found four people leaving a local bar. He held them at gunpoint, tased one, pistol whipped another, then took off with their cash and credit cards.

Five minutes later investigators said Todd carjacked a cab at gunpoint, then headed off to commit fraud, and used his newly acquired stolen credit cards to buy food.

"He was able to find the Walmart on Nolensville. He goes there and purchased $199 worth of items," said Blackburn.

Next stop: Hotel Indigo at 6 a.m.

Police said Todd broke into a law office there, ransacked the business then defecated on a desk, smearing feces on some of the framed law degrees.

He then knocked on several hotel room doors pretending to be a female housekeeper.

In one case, police said Todd stole $600 from a Canadian couple at gunpoint, crying the whole time.

Before taking off in his stolen cab once again, officers said Todd opted for a new look.

"We have him on video leaving the hotel with a shaved head," said Blackburn.

At 9 a.m., police said Todd crashed the stolen cab into a parking garage.

At 11:30 a.m., he hailed a new one and headed to Opryland, then held the cab driver at knifepoint.

Police finally caught up with Todd at noon. They said he was hiding on top of Opryland, submerged in a water-cooling vat with water up to his nose.

It was just a quick nine-hour pit stop in Nashville, but now Todd won't be headed home any time soon.

"He rode the Greyhound bus and had a layover, then left in blue lights. There definitely could be more charges. We hope that there are no more victims," said Blackburn.

Todd is now facing 11 felony charges. Officers said he's also wanted out of Kentucky.

That individual sounds like a wonderful candidate for some pschological testing. We all have bad days, but, ummmm, ya.

It's such a relief to know that either I'll be paying for him the rest of his life in our prison system, or he'll be out on the street. I'll take option three, please. mellow.gif

Does this qualify him for the 3 strikes you're out rule, since there were 11 strikes in 8 hours?

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body.

Rather it should be to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand and the Good Book in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO what a ride!"
