A Florida man said the threat of a zombie attack forced him to break into a St. Petersburg hotel on Wednesday.
David Allen Jensen told police that he was running away from a horde of the undead when he threw a piece of concrete through a pane of glass at the Hilton St. Petersburg Bayfront hotel.
Before turning his attention to the hotel, security guards said Jensen was attempting to break into cars in the hotel’s parking lot. According to police, the suspect was on the prowl for tobacco.
By the time police arrived on the scene, the 41-year-old homeless man had managed to get into a yellow 1991 Mercedes. He’d also tossed the donut-sized piece of concrete used to protect sprinkler heads at the building.
To explain his behavior, Jensen told officers that he trying to avoid a zombie attack when he broke the glass at the hotel. However, he later admitted that he was just looking for tobacco while prowling around the parking lot.
The homeless man was arrested and charged with burglary and throwing a deadly missile into a building. Until he locates $15,000 for bail, he will remain in Pinellas County Jail.
Strangely enough, this isn’t the first time this year that someone has attempted to blame the undead for their peculiar behavior.
The Inquisitr previously reported that 25-year-old Jerimiah Clyde Hartline stole a strawberry truck in an effort to escape a zombie attack in California. During his attempt to escape, he caused multiple accidents and injured several people.
Since Hartline wasn’t an experienced big rig driver, he eventually caused the truck to jack-knife in the middle of Interstate 15. Hartline will plea guilty to three counts of causing great bodily injury, which could land him behind bars for around 12 years.
