A man spotted with a “rather large sledgehammer” was arrested after police say he complained about paying bills and hit a concrete light pole, according to Off the Beat with Will Greenlee.
The officer spied a man later identified as 32-year-old Antonio Eugene Hadden “with a rather large sledgehammer walking on the sidewalk hitting a concrete light pole.” Hadden said he didn’t want to pay his bills and those of his family any longer.
“Hadden said he saw me driving down the street and that is when he struck the concrete city light pole with the sledgehammer,” the affidavit states.
Sledgehammers often are used in heavy demolition work, such as knocking down walls and busting rocks. It wasn’t immediately clear whether a sledgehammer is capable of toppling a concrete city light pole.
