Mississippi Man Drives Truck Into Courthouse

GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) — A man has been arrested after he drove his pickup truck into a courthouse in Mississippi.

News outlets reported that the Gulfport Police Department said in a news release that 28-year-old Keith Cavalier told officers he intentionally crashed into the Harrison County Courthouse early Saturday because it was the best way to let them know his drug paraphernalia had been stolen.

No one was hurt.

Cavalier has been charged with driving under the influence and malicious mischief because of damage to the building.

After climbing out of the truck, the suspect talks briefly with someone who appears to happen by, then walks from view.

The video shows the truck hit the window at 5:42 a.m. Cavalier was jailed the same morning on a $25,000 bond and remains behind bars, the county jail docket shows.

It was not known if he has an attorney yet.
