The mystery vandal with a hilarious sense of humor has been apprehended.
Last week, the little town of Kingsland, Arkansas, got more national press than they could possibly imagine. The tiny Arkansas town is really only known for being the hometown of country music legend, Johnny Cash.
But now they’re known for their johnny cash water tower, which somebody shot a hole in to make it look like Johnny was peeing.
And while illegal, it was downright hilarious.
Whoever shot the Kingsland, AR water tower is a good shot.

Police arrested 38-year-old Timothy Sled on Monday, charging him with a felony for criminal mischief and another felony for impairing the operation of a vital public utility.
While the stunt may have cost the town 30,000 gallons of water a day, most residents, and apparently the mayor, thought it was pretty funny too.
And believe it or not, it brought quite a few tourists to the area, something Kingsland isn’t used to.
So while Sled is technically facing two felony charges, the mayor seems to think it was worth the laugh:
“Really this has all just been laughs here in the town.”
Look Inside Johnny Cash’s Former Lakeside Mansion In Branson, Missouri
Back in the early ’90s, johnny and June Carter Cash played a number of shows in Branson, Missouri.
Cash decided to settle down in the Ozarks tourist hotspot, where he was building his own theater to perform for the massive number of tourists that flocked to the area year in and year out.
Ultimately, the theater ended up falling through, but Cash still lived in the area for a length of time. It’s unclear how long he was there, and whether or not he purchased or rented the house.
But needless to say, the country music duo were living pretty lavish during their time in Branson, as the gorgeous mansion sits alone on the massive Table Rock Lake, on 968 Red Bluff Road, according to Realtor.com
The description says:
“To top it off, Johnny and June Cash lived on THIS property when they had a theater in Branson!
If you are looking for a custom lake home with bit of history, this is where you need to be. Don’t wait, come live on Table Rock Lake today.”
So, if you ever wondered what a home of Johnny Cash would look like, look no further. The $5,450,000, four bed, 4.5 bath, 9,056 square foot home is about as perfect as it gets.
Look at this place:
Johnny Cash’s Old ’70 Rolls-Royce Was Turned Into A Tesla
Imagine owning the 1970 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow that once belonged to the legendary Johnny Cash.
Now imagine turning it into a Tesla… because that’s exactly what just happened.
According to Digital Trends, Johnny’s old ’70s Rolls Royce was turned into a Tesla-powered electric car using the guts of a 2016 Tesla Model S.
Built by Shift Electric Vehicles in Albany, Oregon, the project was commissioned by a Johnny Cash fan that bought the car at an auction. And since Johnny’s old Rolls would’ve been a nightmare to fix, the owner decided to go electric… with as many Tesla components as possible.
“They originally approached Tesla,” says Shift EV boss Kirk Swaney:
“It was a pretty significant job to move these computers, mount them, and make them work in a functional way.”
The final project? A completely electric Rolls that even faster AND smoother than the original. And of course, they kept the original “JRC” badge as a nod to the Man in Black himself.
Here’s how it all went down.
