One man traveling through Tennessee allegedly completed a crime spree with such urgency that even local police say they'd never seen anything like it.

William Todd, 24, is accused of committing 10 felonies in just nine hours while going on a "terror" through Nashville.

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

Todd is not even a native of Nashville. Police say he traveled there on a Greyhound bus from Kentucky before beginning his unprecedented crime spree. Upon arriving in Nashville, he allegedly broke into a local business called The Slaughterhouse, where he stole a Taser, revolver and shotgun. He then proceeded to steal a T-shirt from the Slaughterhouse before burning the business to the ground.
Todd then moved on to a local bar, where he held four patrons at gunpoint. He robbed all four individuals but not before using the Taser on one and pistol-whipping another.

Just five minutes later, Todd moved onto his next alleged felony, carjacking a taxi driver at gunpoint. After leaving the cab, he used the credit cards he had stolen from the bar patrons to buy food. "He was able to find the Walmart on Nolensville. He goes there and purchased $199 worth of items," Sgt. Blackburn said. And that was only the beginning.

In the early hours of the following morning, Todd then broke into a local hotel's law office. He not only vandalized the offices but also then defecated on a desk and smeared his feces on some of the framed law degrees. Leaving the offices, Todd then reportedly robbed several of the hotel guests. He knocked on their door pretending to be a female housekeeper, then robbed them at gunpoint. He was also reportedly crying while doing so. He then briefly paused for a change in personal appearance.

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

After crashing his stolen cab into a local parking garage, Todd then quickly held another taxi driver at gunpoint. When police finally apprehended Todd, he was hiding atop Opryland, partially submerged in a water-cooling vat. The Metro Fire Department was brought in to assist in Todd's removal from the vat, using a bucket and ladder truck. His bond has reportedly been set at $180,000.

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

Nick Cage has already accepted the role.

In fact, I think this guy was just doing performance art about Nick Cage.

Since he stole two firearms and a taser from "The Slaughterhouse", I had to Google it to see if it was a gun store. That would have been the best gun store name ever.

Alas, it appears to be some sort of haunted house attraction.

The man knows how to stay focused, can plan ahead and multitask.

Should get a job as a postal worker.

I can't wait for the moralists to blame Grand Theft Auto for this.

Clearly he's from the future and his seemingly meaningless actions prevented a great catastrophe. Shame they drug him out of the coolant vat before his way back opened up.

I'm unimpressed. I could do all that in less than 4 hours, really.

That's quite the meltdown... and to think it all could have been avoided if he just watched a few movies about cheating women.

I could do that all in less than four hours, and NOT get caught.

At least he'll have a good story to tell the other prisoners.

Was I the only one bothered that the title says "(Nashville, TN)"? Naming the location may be more informative, but I think the only thing that matters is Florida or Not Florida.

A place where Zimmerman's former legal advisors were practicing.

Evidently, they are sending out the SWAT team to evict little old ladies.
