Florida Man Tells Police Too Much Masturbation and Music Caused Him to Vandalize Home

Posted by

A Florida man gave police the wildest explanation for vandalizing property following his arrest.

He told police he had “listened to too much music and masturbated too much and he felt like going out and destroying stuff,” the incident report states, obtained by The Smoking Gun.

Police arrested 25-year-old William Thomas on Friday after causing more than $2,000 in damages to a Clearwater home and boat that belonged to Davor Jerkovic, arrest records show.

According to Tampa, Florida station, WFLA, someone reported seeing a man on the property smashing mailboxes. Police found Thomas at the residence shirtless and covered in dirt upon their arrival.

WFLA says a trailer tire had been flattened, a house window was broken, and a mailbox, as well as a real estate sign and a garden angel were damaged.

The Smoking Gunn reports when a Largo Police officer arrested Thomas, he allegedly confessed to the vandalism, saying that he was “envisioning destroying other peoples lives.”

It is unclear why Thomas targeted this particular home, which is just a short distance from his home –seven miles, reports the Smoking Gunn.

Thomas was charged with burglary and criminal mischief. He was booked into the Pinellas County Jail with bond set at $7,000.

This was not the first run in with the law for Thomas this year, reports The Smoking Gun. He was arrested for stealing items from a Walmart, for which he entered a no contest plea to the misdemeanor count. He was ordered to pay $500 in fines and court costs.
