CRESTVIEW, Florida. A Florida man arrested for destroying a liquor store under construction told police that he was Alice in Wonderland and that “a hookah-smoking caterpillar” ordered him to attack the place.
Crestview police said in a Facebook post that Matthew Horace Jones is accused of breaking into a fenced-in area and using a forklift to cause more than $ 100,000 in damage. He faces major theft and other charges.
Witnesses called 911 and the police arrived at the scene. A police report says Jones pointed a forklift at the officers, who stopped him with a pistol.
Police quoted Jones as “Alice in Wonderland”, accusing the attack of a “hookah-smoking caterpillar” and saying he was having problems “building a place to sell alcohol.”
There is no lawyer for him
