Nashville police: 1 man, 9 hours, 12 charges

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Nashville police say a visitor in town just nine hours racked up 12 criminal charges.

Police told WSMV-TV that 24-year-old William Todd got in trouble during a bus layover on March 25.

They say Todd, a Kentucky fugitive, first broke into a tourist attraction, stealing a revolver, shotgun and stun gun.

He is also suspected of holding up four nightclub patrons with the stun gun and revolver, carjacking a cab, posing as a hotel worker to rob guests and breaking into an office where he smeared feces on framed law degrees.

He was arrested after taking a cab to another hotel, pulling a knife on the driver and refusing to pay the fare.

He remained in jail Thursday, awaiting trial. Jail records don't indicate if he has a lawyer.
