A driver was arrested after slamming an SUV through the gates at the FBI’s Atlanta field office before trying to run inside the building. 

According to the FBI, the unidentified male suspect rammed the vehicle into the front gate on Monday a little after noon at the offices off Flowers Road in Chamblee, Georgia. 

Jenna Sellitto, a spokesperson for the bureau, said the DeKalb County police arrested the suspect and took the driver to a nearby hospital for evaluation. 

The FBI said that a man tried to follow an authorized vehicle through the gate but was stopped. He then ran out of the car and toward the building.

The agents in the car ahead of the suspect’s got out and detained the driver along with two other FBI agents who were on their way to grab lunch. 

Pictures of the red SUV showed the smooshed car on top of the black and yellow striped barrier that lifted up from the ground. 

Another image showed officials around the scene as the car was packed away on a tow truck around 4pm. 

The FBI said agents will follow procedures and check the car and the investigation is ongoing. The driver could face state and federal charges.

No injuries were reported and it is unclear why the suspect attempted to break the gates and get into the government building.
