Going on a vandalism spree must have made an Okaloosa man tired, as deputies found him taking a nap on a bench after the incident, deputies said.

On Monday morning, Justin Wilson, 30, caused about $30,000 worth of damage when he damaged at least 20 cars parked at a Holiday Inn Resort on Okaloosa Island in the Panhandle , according to the sheriff’s office.

Witnesses told deputies Wilson used rocks and a belt to smash windows and beat the cars.

Deputies responded to the parking lot and found Wilson passed out on a bench in front of the resort.

After they woke him up, deputies said he told them, “Take me to jail. I did it because Donald Trump owes me one trillion dollars and these vehicles belong to the Mafia.”
