St. Petersburg police recently arrested a prowler who they say tried to fight a fire hydrant before he was taken into custody.
Police said they arrested Jeffrey Paul McKenna, 34, after he was seen peeking into windows of homes in the 4800 block of Third Avenue N in St. Petersburg on Aug. 14.
Police were called and when officers arrived, McKenna told them he was looking for "Tony" and "wanted to go with the back up officer and smoke and be back in 20 minutes," an officer wrote in an arrest report.
"He was also acting like he was going to fight the fire hydrant in front of him prior to being taken into custody," the officer wrote.
The report does not indicate if McKenna — or the fire hydrant — landed any blows.
