Andy Berg

A Columbia, Mo., man faces felony charges Monday after taking a joyride through the University of Missouri's Mizzou Arena early Sunday morning.

According to a report from St. Louis Post Dispatch, Nathaniel Conant, 23, drove his Volkswagen Passat through Mizzou Arena, causing an estimated $100,000 worth of damage. 

Conant turned himself in early Sunday evening and was arrested on suspicion of second-degree burglary and first-degree property damage. He posted $4,500 bond for the burglary charge and $6,000 for the property damage charge.

Conant reportedly drove through a closed gate on the south side of the arena, plowing through a garage door and dock area. In the process, he damaged several golf carts and also drove his car onto the basketball court.

Mizzou Arena opened in 2004 and has a capacity of 15,061.
