However, it appears that he was intentional in his purpose, which has left Hargreaves arrested and potentially being charged with multiple offences, including terrorism due to his apparent desire to cause harm.
It has been reported that, although not heard in the video, Hargreaves was loudly playing ‘Welcome to the Jungle’ by Guns N’ Roses.
As soon as he hit the police station, which completely collapsed a wall, he left his car and celebrated. Two police officers rushed into the room after hearing the commotion and ordered Hargreaves to step away from the car.
After closing the door and complying, the two police officers detained Hargreaves and took him into the main part of the station to officially arrest and detain him.
The charges that Hargreaves are potentially facing include burglary, criminal mischief, possession of a weapon for unlawful purposes, aggravated assault, harassment and terrorism.
After the announcement of charges, the police released the video for the public to see.
