Drunk Man Drove Truck Into Courthouse To Report His Drugs Were Stolen

A man has been arrested after he drove his pickup truck into a courthouse in Mississippi. Harrison County surveillance video shows a Toyota pickup ramming into the courthouse and plate glass raining down on the hood before a man climbs out the passenger side and stands on the sidewalk, calmly surveying the damage.

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

Cavalier has been charged with driving under the influence and malicious mischief because of damage to the building. The Gulfport man is being held in the county jail.
