PROVO -- A man who thought he was going to be killed goes on a weird rampage inside a Provo post office.

When police arrived at the post office at 100 S. 80 West Monday night, they say the man was trying to break the glass out of the front door.

Court documents outlined in the Daily Herald say Abren Williams Jr., 22, scattered envelopes, poured beer on the floor, broke out a window, knocked four holes in the wall, flipped over tables and then lit one on fire.

Why did he do this? He told police officers he went to the post office because someone threatened his life and he wanted to be somewhere with surveillance cameras, but then no one showed up to fight. So he apparently found a different way to take out his frustrations.

He was arrested and booked into the Utah County Jail.
