University of Missouri  police have arrested Nathaniel J. Conant, 23, of Columbia Missouri, after they say he went on a joy ride in his Volkswagen Passat — inside of Mizzou Arena, according to the Kansas City Star.

Police went to the arena Sunday morning after receiving a report of property damage, When they arrived, they determined a vehicle went through an arena gate and a garage door, and then damaged several golf carts before driving on to the baseball court’s floor.

Conant was arrested and faces charges of second-degree burglary and four counts of first-degree property damage — both felonies — the Star reported.

Conant, graduated in December 2016  from Missouri with a degree in English, and the Star reported that he was an events assistant for the SEC Network. The university told the Star he was a temporary employee who was not longer employed by Missouri.
