Man: Demons, ghosts told me to destroy hotel room | Crime
(WMC-TV) – An Arkansas man is behind bars in Memphis after he allegedly demolished a motel room to free the demons and ghosts trapped in its walls.
Police were called to the Airport Inn, 1441 E. Brooks Rd., early Saturday morning after workers got into an argument with a guest over damage he allegedly did to his room.
The motel’s manager said he watched as Mabry Guenther left his room while water poured from underneath its door. The manager went into the room and told police that Sheetrock had been ripped from the bathroom walls and a microwave and broken pieces of furniture were piled in the bathtub.
Police stopped Guenther, who was wearing only a t-shirt and boxer shorts, about a block away. The 22-year-old told officers he destroyed the room because it was filled with demons and ghosts that needed to be freed, according to court records.
Motel workers said Guenther caused $10,000 in damage to the room. Guenther has been charged with vandalism.
