    If you've heard of a story wilder than this one, then I salute you... :)

    A man by the name of William Todd arrived in Nashville in a Greyhound bus and had a 9 hour layover. He quickly made good use of this time however...

    He apparently broke into The Slaughterhouse and stole a taser, revolver and a shotgun, shot the place up, stole a t-shirt and set the business on fire.

    He then ran into four people leaving a local bar and held them up at gunpoint, tased one, pistol-whipped another and ran off with their cash and credit cards.

    He then carjacked a cab at gunpoint and went to Walmart (?) to buy a bunch of stuff with the stolen cards, before breaking into a law office, ransacking the place and defecated on a desk, smearing feces on some of the law degrees framed on the wall.

    At the Hotel Indigo he knocked on several hotel room doors pretending to be a female housekeeper, stole $600 from a Canadian couple that actually opened the door and then attempted to take off once again in the stolen cab.

    And I say attempted because he crashed it into a parking garage. So he stole another one, this one at knife-point (I guess he wanted some variety).

    He was eventually found hiding in a water cooling vat on top of Opryland.

    Now that's a layover.

    Of course that was his hiding spot. I expected nothing less. :)
