Florida man wrecks liquor shop, blames caterpillar

15 Août 2017

But here's where it gets weird (more so), according to police, after Jones was arrested he claimed his name was Alice in Wonderland and that a "hookah-smoking caterpillar" forced him to commit the crime.

The Miami Herald reports that Mathew Horace Jones, 32, was arrested on Saturday after he trashed a construction site in Crestview, causing a total of $129,000 in damage, including the cost of labor to clean up the wreck. Jones told police he did it because a hookah-smoking caterpillar told him to, according to a Crestview Police news release. Jones is being accused of breaking into the construction site and using the forklift to destroy the building under construction that was attached to the main store.

Crestview Police were alerted to the site after receiving complaints about a man "throwing cinder blocks off the scaffolding in the construction zone".

When police arrived, Jones allegedly aimed the forklift at officers on scene before they stopped him at gunpoint and took him into custody.
