Man blames zombie attack for throwing concrete at hotel

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) – A homeless man is in jail after throwing pieces of concrete at a St. Petersburg hotel.

Police say 41-year-old David Allen Jensen told them he was trying to get inside the hotel early Wednesday because zombies were chasing him. They say he broke the glass at the Hilton St. Petersburg Bayfront hotel with a doughnut-sized chunk of concrete used to protect sprinkler heads.

The Tampa Bay Times reports nearby security guards told police Jensen was trying to open doors to a number of cars. Jensen told police he was looking for tobacco.

Jensen faces multiple charges, including burglary and throwing a deadly missile into a building. He remained in jail Thursday. Jail records did not list an attorney for Jensen.
