A man from Montgomery County, Texas is behind bars after he reportedly smashed his way into a police vehicle using a toilet seat, which he blamed on a night of extreme drinking for his behavior.

Breitbart Texas reported that 19-year-old Dionis Luque-Estrada woke up on Monday morning in the back of a police vehicle parked outside the department headquarters. Luque Estrada reportedly has no recollection of what happened and how he got into the back of the car.

Luque-Estrada allegedly fell asleep in the back seat of the police car after he picked up a toilet lid that he found in a dumpster and smashed several windows of the vehicle, according to the Montgomery County Police Reporter.

Later, the man managed to drag a concrete parking stop over to the cop car and used it to crush some of the side panels before he crawled into the car and went to sleep.

A person drove by and contacted police to inform that the car windows seemed like they had been shot out. Officers from the Conroe Police Department, along with deputies from the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office Precinct 2 Constable’s Office were dispatched to the scene and discovered Luque-Estrada passed out in the backseat of the vehicle.

Law enforcement officials reported that the seven-year-old patrol car had just recently been renovated and was equipped for reserve deputies. Constable Gene DeForest stated that the car is salvageable, but the damage caused is worth approximately $4,000.

The 19-year-old was taken into custody and now faces a felony charge of criminal mischief.
