NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

A man was arrested over the weekend for ransacking a Nashville area drug store.

Berry Hill police were called after Andrew Reilly, 26, was observed at the Walgreens store on Franklin Pike going aisle by aisle, knocking items off the shelves.

The incident was captured on cell phone video by another customer.

When the manager noticed what was going on, he told all of the customers to leave the store.  He then got the employees in a back room until police arrived.

"The manager didn't confront the man.  He operated just as he should have," Berry Hill Police Chief Robert Bennett told News 2.

According to the police report, Reilly struggled with officers as they attempted to subdue him.

He repeated the phrases "I am Judas.  I betrayed Jesus" and "Please put me to death" as he was taken into custody.

"This guy could have become very violent.  He was completely irrational and out of control," Chief Bennett continued.

Reilly caused thousands of dollars of damage. No one was hurt.

He was charged with vandalism, assault of an officer, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

He later told officers he had ingested Propofol, meth and Ritalin.

Reilly was taken to a local hospital where he spent the night in the intensive care unit before being taken to jail the next day.

As of Tuesday afternoon he had not made bond.

Nashville's News 2 reached out to the manager of the Walgreens who did not want to comment on the story.

A Walgreens corporate spokesperson said a statement was not available.

Reilly is scheduled to appear in court Thursday morning at 9:15 a.m.
