|William Todd, 24|
One man who is traveling is committing crime sprees in Tennessee, and the local police said they never seen such a thing. William Todd, 24, is accused of committing ten felonies in just nine hours through Nashville. Todd does not live or was born in Nashville; he traveled there on a Greyhound bus from Kentucky before beginning his crime spree. Crazy right? The story gets even weirder. When he arrived in Nashville, he allegedly broke into a local business called the Slaughterhouse, and he stole a Taser, revolver and a shotgun. Then he stole a t-shirt from the same place before burning the business to the ground. Clearly this guy has some serious issues and what was the motivation behind this? Todd then moved on to a local bar where he held four people at gunpoint. He robbed the individuals but not before using the Taser on one and pistol-whipping another. Just five minutes later, Todd moved on to his next felony, he carjacked a taxi driver at gunpoint. After leaving the cab, he used the credit cards that he stole from the people at the bar to buy food. He was able to find a Wal-Mart in Nolensville and he bought 199 dollars worth of items. This guy is reckless and very dangerous, Sgt. Tony Blackburn said he has never seen such a thing before and that was only the beginning.
On the following morning Todd broke into a local hotel’s law office where he vandalized the offices, defecated on a desk and smeared his feces on some of the framed law degrees. What kind of human being does such a thing; something has to be mentally wrong with him because that is so disgusting. He leaves the offices and he reportedly robbed several of the hotel guests, by knocking on their door and pretending to be a female housekeeper and then robbing them at gunpoint. He was also reportedly crying while doing the robbing. My question is where are the police when all of this is happening? After the robbery he changed his personal appearance, the police have him on video leaving the hotel with his head shaved.
Todd just keeps going and going because after he crashes his stolen cab into a local parking garage, he then quickly held another taxi driver at gunpoint. This makes you think twice about becoming a taxi driver! Police finally apprehended Todd, after Metro Police officers were called to the Opryland property in the Donelson area, a taxi driver reported that a man refused to pay the required fare and threatened him with a knife. The Opryland security witnessed the incident and followed the suspect, who was identified as Todd who fled on foot to the cooling tower. The officers climbed the ladder on the side of the cooling tower and Todd was found in the water pit. They took him out of the tower by using a basket and a ladder truck. Todd’s bond is set at $ 180,000 and he was booked on three counts of aggravated assault, theft of cab services and being a fugitive from justice out of Kentucky, and that was just a few of his counts that he was booked with, additional charges are anticipated. He was taken to a hospital, where they found heroin use in his system. He hurt incident people for no reason and now these people have to deal with the agony. Hopefully he goes to jail for a long time.
