Florida man goes on $2-million excavator rampage through city, parks “in” Walmart, runs through store with machete, Jesse Smith hotwired an excavator on Monday and took it on a destructive joyride through Gainsville, Florida, causing an estimated $2 million in damage.

Here‘s the rundown of all the things Smith destroyed: Four buildings at the Storage Depot of Gainesville, fences, a utility pole, and a loading dock.

In the end, Smith decided he needed to make a quick run to Walmart to pick up a few things.So he parked his excavator in, and I do mean in, the Automotive department.

Then he hopped out and ran inside wielding a machete just in case those Walmart associates gave him any trouble.

When officers confronted Smith, he dropped the machete and then started fighting them hand-to-hand when they tried to restrain him.

Smith is being charged with grand theft, property damage, resisting an officer, and trespassing.
