ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Arrested for throwing a deadly missile into a building around 1:30 in the morning Wednesday, a homeless man told police he was simply trying to get away from zombies.
St. Petersburg Police say David Allen Jensen, 41, used a donut-shaped piece of concrete to break glass outside the Hilton St. Petersburg Bayfront Hotel on First Street S.
He was trying to get inside, he told police, because zombies were chasing him.
Security officers say they saw Jensen pulling on the handles of car doors, too, but not to avoid the undead. He told police he was trying to steal tobacco from the cars.
Jensen faces multiple charges, including burglary and throwing a deadly missile into a building. He remained in jail Thursday. Jail records did not list an attorney for Jensen.
