A Georgia man went on a rampage yesterday at a Walmart outside of Atlanta, smashing dozens of flat-screen televisions with a baseball bat he found in the store.

The man, 23-year-old Westley Strellis, bashed in 29 flat-screen televisions worth $22,000, reports the Atlanta Journal Constitution. He was charged with a whopping 29 counts of criminal damage to property.

WATCH video from the store surveillance cameras:


Strellis invoked his Fifth Amendment right to stay mum, so his motive remains a mystery. According to the police report, when officers arrived on the scene, Strellis was sitting in an aisle in the store's electronics department. When approached, he held out his wrists, signaling for the officer to handcuff him. Police found a bottle of Effexor XR, an anti-depressant, in Strellis's possession.
