According to the police report, Wilson used rocks and a belt buckle to smash windows and beat at least twenty cars, causing roughly $30,000.00 in damages.

Deputies located the suspect a short time later, passed out on a bench in front of the Holiday Inn.

When Wilson was located, he admitted to breaking the windows and said “Take me to jail. I did it because Donald Trump owes me one trillion dollars and these vehicles belong to the mafia.”

He faces fourteen counts of felony criminal mischief and six counts misdemeanor criminal mischief.
