William Todd Arrested On Roof Of Opryland Hotel Cooling Tower
A fugitive in America has been arrested following a bizarre nine hour crime spree, where he committed more than 10 felonies. William Todd wreaked havoc on Nashville, where he started his day of terror by breaking into a haunted house tourist attraction and stealing a taser, revolver and shotgun. He then set the business on fire.
Todd then robbed four people at gunpoint, making off with cash and credit cards. Police say five minutes later Todd carjacked a cab, then used his newly acquired credit cards to buy food.
Todd then broke into a local lawyers office, ransacked the business then defecated on a desk, smearing feces on some of the framed law degrees.
He then impersonated a female housekeeper and knocked on several hotel room doors.
In one case, police said Todd stole $600 from a Canadian couple.
Police say Todd then shaved his head before taking off in his stolen cab.
At 9am, police said Todd crashed the stolen cab into a parking garage.
Two hours later he hailed a new one and held the cab driver at knifepoint.
Police finally arrested Todd at lunchtime when they found him hiding on top of a mall, submerged in a water-cooling vat with water up to his nose.
'He was just on a terror. I've never seen anything like this before,' said Sgt. Tony Blackburn.
Todd has been charged with three counts of aggravated assault, theft of cab services and being fugitive of justice out of Kentucky. His bond was set at $180,000.
