Cops Nail Man Who Burgled 'Slaughterhouse'...Stealing Taser, Guns & T-Shirt...Before Zapping and Pistol Whipping Patrons in Bar Robbery That Preceded Taxi Carjacking and Feces Smearing of Law Office en Route to Gender-Switch Hotel Shakedown (Pause for Head Shaving and More Knife Wielding) in Showdown That Ended Atop Opryland in Water Vat


I've never seen anything like this before."

It's not that often that you have a crime spree with a timeline as wild as this one.

The suspect is a persistent thug named William Todd.

Cops in Nashville will long remember that name.

Before we dive in, note that all of the alleged crimes went down in just a nine-hour window during Todd's layover in the city during a Greyhound trip.

Here's how they are reporting it on WSMV-TV:

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

Police said Todd traveled to Nashville on a Greyhound bus. During his nine-hour layover, officers said he committed more than 10 felonies.

Officers said Todd broke into the Slaughterhouse and stole a Taser, revolver and shotgun. Then, they said he shot the business up, stole a T-shirt and set the business on fire.

Police said Todd then found four people leaving a local bar. He held them at gunpoint, tased one, pistol whipped another, then took off with their cash and credit cards.

Five minutes later investigators said Todd carjacked a cab at gunpoint, then headed off to commit fraud, and used his newly acquired stolen credit cards to buy food.

"He was able to find the Walmart on Nolensville. He goes there and purchased $199 worth of items," said Blackburn.

Next stop: Hotel Indigo at 6 a.m.

Police said Todd broke into a law office there, ransacked the business then defecated on a desk, smearing feces on some of the framed law degrees.

And he wasn't done.  The gender switching, head shaving, knife wielding and the Opryland climbing would come next.
