OAKLAND PARK, Fla., May 22 (UPI) -- Police in Florida said they arrested a man accused of using a statue of Buddha to smash his roommate's windshield during an argument.

The Broward Sheriff's Office said Alexander Galarza, 27, of Oakland Park argued with the victim, Todd Wilsey, and Wilsey's sister shortly before 7:30 a.m. Sunday before smashing Wilsey's computer and knocking over his sister's dresser, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported Tuesday.

Wilsey said Galarza struck him in the chest then threw the Buddha sculpture through the windshield of his Volkswagen, which was parked in the driveway.

Deputies estimated the damage at $300.

Galarza was arrested and charged with battery and criminal mischief.
