Police in Dallas arrested a ‘ranting’ man accused of crashing a pickup truck into a Fox affiliate TV station building this morning during a live broadcast.

KDFW posted details on its Facebook page showing photos of the front of the silver Dodge Ram truck rammed into windows near an entrance.

The man paced and scattered numerous handwritten leaflets outside. He was not able to enter the building and was soon arrested.

The incident took place shortly after 6am in the 400 block of North Griffin Street in downtown Dallas.

Anchors who continued on the air through the 7am newscast, despite the crash, say nobody was hurt. The truck hit an unoccupied administrative side of the building before office workers arrived for the day.

A KDFW statement says ‘a man crashed a truck into the side of our building this morning’ and ‘jumped out and started ranting’.

Anchor and reporter Brandon Todd, who witnessed the man pacing outside the station before he was arrested, said the man was yelling about ‘high treason,’ and that he believed he had clearly been wronged and that someone was trying to kill him.

‘It’s not real clear to what his message was,’ according to Todd.

The man started crying when police took him into custody, Todd said.

According to police, the unnamed suspect was upset about an officer-involved shooting that occurred elsewhere.
