Breaking: Man Rams Truck into Fox TV Building 'Screaming About Treason'


A man rammed a pickup truck into the offices of KDFW-TV, a Fox-owned television station in Dallas, on Wednesday morning before he got out of his vehicle and ranted about treason. The story is being chronicled in a series of tweets from the station and local reporters.

Dallas police received a call regarding the crash and rushed to the 400 block of N. Griffin Street at around 6:15 a.m. The driver of the Dodge Ram vehicle is currently in custody, according to tweets from the station’s news department.

“A man crashed a truck into the side of our building this morning. He jumped out and started ranting,” according to initial reports from KDFW news.

KDFW reporter Brandon Todd later shared a photo of the suspect claiming he was yelling about “high treason.”

The man appeared to be holding a paper with illegible writing to the window. The suspect also appeared to be holding several other pages of paper in his other hand.

Pages of paper can also be seen scattered around the scene, which may be the same pages of paper seen with the suspect earlier.

The man also left behind a suspicious package which required the attention of the police.

The Dallas bomb squad investigated the package and the surrounding area.

Dallas police also swept the building with a K-9 unit.

The streets around the television station were closed off and the building was evacuated, according to Breitbart News.

A motive has not been confirmed, but Tiffany Liou of WFAA-TV in Dallas said an employee of the Fox station told her it appeared to be a deliberate attack. She also mentioned the suspect’s rant on treason.

There have been no injuries reported so far.

After police determined there were no explosives on site, employees were allowed to return inside the building around 9:30 a.m. local time.
