A man was arrested after crashing his pickup truck into the building of the local TV station FOX 4 News in Dallas, Texas during a live newscast, employees at the media outlet said on Wednesday.
"A man crashed a truck into the side of our building this morning. He jumped out and started ranting. He’s in custody now but the bomb squad is on its way," Fox 4 News staff said in a Facebook post.
During the incident, the man repeatedly rammed his truck into the side of the downtown office building, which has floor to ceiling windows, FOX4 staff said.
