[Correction: an earlier version of this story incorrectly stated the nature of all charges brought against Wills. Wills made financial restitution immediately and charges were reduced.] Troy Wills, the former strength coach for the University of Tennessee men’s basketball team, was arrested this week after breaking into an office at Tennessee’s Thompson-Boling Arena last Saturday. Wills was charged with burglary and vandalism. He had keys, but when they didn’t work he used a saw. Here are the details via GoVolsXtra:
The warrant said Wills, using a saw, broke into the office of Bill Whitesell, a UT event management director, then “ransacked” the room, causing $750 in damages to university property, and took $4,150 in cash from Whitesell’s desk. The incident was reported to police Saturday afternoon.
Police say video shows Wills walking down a Thompson-Boling Arena hallway “with what appears to be a saw in his hand” and “attempting to hide (the saw) underneath his coat” at 3:53 a.m. Saturday. The affidavit said he was next seen on camera leaving at 4:31 a.m.
As you can see from the video, Wills was completely incognito, so I have no idea how police were able to figure out it was him.
