NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A burglary charge against a man accused of vandalizing a Nashville mosque has been dismissed, while a vandalism charge was bound over to a grand jury.

Officials with the Criminal Court Clerk's Office said a grand jury will still hear the vandalism charge against 27-year-old Kyler A. Wilson, and decided on an indictment.

Wilson told police after his arrest Monday that he was very drunk and did not remember breaking into the Al-Farooq Islamic Center on 4th Avenue South. Several windows were broken, and items inside, including tables, a vending machine, microwave, and water cooler, had been overturned. Two hearses in the parking lot also had their windshields broken.

Wilson was arrested a few hours after the incident when police found him sleeping in only his boxer shorts inside a vehicle outside a business on 2nd Avenue South.

Wilson also told police that he has no animosity toward any religion or group.
