William Todd will not be forgotten in Nashville for years to come. The thug got off a Greyhound bus in the Music City and set off on a nine-hour spree of violence that will be hard to match... this story and the mayhem wrought is simply hard to believe.
Todd was just due for a middle of the night layover in Nashville. Before noon the next day Nashville cops say he committed more than 10 felonies. Said Stg. Tony Blackburn "I've never seen anything like this before." I'll summarize Todd's exploits from when he first crossed the line through his arrest - but if you want to see the unbelievable timeline you can check it out on The Blaze.
This moves fast: after getting off the bus Todd breaks into a slaughter house where he steals a Taser, revolver and shotgun; he then shot up the place, stole a T-shirt and set the business on fire; next, Todd accosts four patrons coming out of a bar at gun point, he Tases one, pistol whips another and then steals their cash and credit cards; from there he carjacks a cab at gunpoint and heads to Walmart where he goes on a spending spree with the stolen credit cards; next, Todd breaks into a law office where he ransacks the place - before leaving he piled framed law degrees on a desk and proceeded to defecate all over them; from there it's off to Hotel Indigo where he knocks on several hotel room doors before finally stealing $600 from a Canadian couple at gunpoint. He wasn't done... police have video of Todd leaving the hotel after taking the time to shave his head; from there he takes off in the stolen cab and proceeds to crash it in a parking garage; he next hails another cab and has the driver deliver him to Opreyland at knifepoint; police finally catch up to the perp on top of the Opreyland roof, getting his Martin Sheen/Apocalypse Now on, submerged in a water-cooling tank submerged up to his nose. Finally, after a nine-hour binge of mayhem and destruction, the alleged maniac is arrested.
Todd is now facing 11 felony counts. He is also a wanted man in Kentucky. You can't make this stuff up...
