A 34-year-old white man from Denton, Texas admitted himself into a clinical facility after confessing to spray-painting a racial slur on the garage door of his family home.

The father of four set his truck and motorcycle on fire and vandalized his home making it appear as though they’d been victims of a “hate crime.”

From the Daily Mail:

David and Jenny Williams from Denton, Texas, woke up to find their truck and motorcycle ablaze and the vile slur ‘n***** lovers’ scrawled across their garage door in spray paint on December 12.

Police deemed the incident a hate crime and launched an arson investigation while well-wishers donated money to the family to help repair the damage.

On Tuesday, Mrs Williams however revealed it was her husband who had started the fire.

‘David confessed to spray painting our garage door and starting the fire at our home,’ she wrote in a Facebook post to friends.

The couple had started a GoFundMe page, claiming the damage caused by the fire wasn’t covered under their insurance policy. According to a facebook post, Mrs. Williams has contacted GoFundMe to return all donations made.

She wrote:


Mr. Williams will be arrested upon discharge from the clinical facility.

I suppose I’ll have to update our “hate crime” hoax post now.
