A New Jersey man faces multiple charges including a count of terrorism after he drove his SUV through the wall of a New Jersey police station.

The Sept. 20 incident ended with the suspect, John Hargreaves, 34, of Belvidere, New Jersey, appearing to be celebrating as the stereo of the SUV played the Guns N’ Roses song “Welcome to the Jungle.”

Although no injuries were reported, one police officer barely escaped being hurt according to the Associated Press.

According to a news release from the Warren County Prosecutor’s Office, the incident that led to Hargreaves’s arrest began at about 6:17 p.m. when an SUV crashed into a garage in Liberty Township, New Jersey.

At that time “the defendant deliberately crashed his gold Toyota SUV into the garage of a private residence in an attempt to scare or harass the homeowner, who the defendant knew,” the release said.

The release said that the Independence Township police station being the closest one to the initial incident, was picked as the next stop.

WRNJ-FM posted an external video that showed the SUV as it approached the building and drove straight for its entrance.

In connection with the police station crash, Hargraves faces counts of terrorism, aggravated assault and causing widespread injury or damage stemming from the police station crash.

The motive for the police station crash is not known.
