Logan broke into the temple a little after 5 a.m. on Saturday, May 12, 2018, by smashing a window open. According to reports, Logan smashed several chairs and a glass table in a female dressing room before making his way up the stairs, where he damaged other windows, lamps, tables, and chairs. His blood was reportedly smeared throughout the area from wounds Logan sustained in his rampage. The estimated cost of damages is between $10,000 to $15,000.

The charges against Logan include:

  • Criminal mischief (a second-degree felony)
  • Burglary (a third-degree felony)
  • Interfering with an arresting officer
  • Disorderly conduct

Temple workers wrestled with Logan, trying to restrain him when he reached the fifth floor. Police arrived on the scene and attempted to take Logan into custody, which he resisted. Logan has given no statement on his reason for entering and vandalizing the temple.
