Man arrested for throwing concrete, blames zombies

ST. PETERSBURG — A man repeatedly threw a small piece of concrete at the Hilton St. Petersburg Bayfront hotel early Wednesday morning, saying he was trying to get inside because zombies were chasing him, according to an arrest affidavit.

David Allen Jensen, 41, who has no permanent address, broke the glass outside the hotel on First Street S about 1:30 a.m. with a doughnut-shaped piece of concrete used to protect sprinkler heads, the report states.

Around the same time, security officers nearby reported they saw Jensen trying to open doors to a number of cars. He was able to get into a yellow 1991 Mercedes, the affidavit states.

St. Petersburg police said Jensen admitted to entering the car because he was trying to steal tobacco.

He faces charges of burglary and throwing a deadly missile into a building. He was being held at the Pinellas County Jail Wednesday in lieu of $15,000 bail.
