‘Satan told me to’: Man levels Ten Commandments statue with car, offers come in to rebuild

Long after Eve invented the “the devil made me do it” excuse, it’s not likely to be any more successful for an Oklahoma man who destroyed a Ten Commandments monument.

The unidentified man admitted to U.S. Secret Service agents Friday that he purposely crashed his car into the monument at the Oklahoma State Capitol, local NBC affiliate KFOR reported.

The agents said the man was acting strangely when he walked into the Federal Building in downtown Oklahoma City, according to KFOR. After leveling threats against President Obama and the federal government, the man then confessed that he leveled the statue, saying Satan made him do it. The devil also instructed him to urinate on the structure, he said.

The man said he was bipolar and had been off his medication for a while, KFOR reported. He was taken to a mental health facility for evaluation.

Photos of the damaged monument were posted on Twitter, attracting some interesting responses. Here’s a sampling:
