A 19-year-old reacted to romantic rejection by using a fire extinguisher and damaging an apartment building and cars, according to a release from Madison police.

Officers said that when they were called to an apartment in the 2200 block of Luann Lane at 12:16 a.m. on Sunday they found a hallway filled with fire extinguisher fog. They said they needed gas masks to enter. They said they found numerous plastic sconces shattered, a spent fire extinguisher and broken glass from an interior door.

Police said several cars in an underground parking area were damaged, including some with dents from jumping on the hood and two with broken windshields.

Fire alarms in two neighboring buildings had been pulled, according to police.

Police found Toupoun J. Lee, of Milwaukee, nearby and arrested him on suspicion of several counts of criminal damage to property and disorderly conduct.
