DALLAS (AP) - Deputies have arrested a man suspected of crashing a pickup truck through some metal gates outside the Dallas County jail.

Sheriff’s investigators say the driver faces criminal mischief charges following the incident before dawn Tuesday.

The swinging mesh gates are in an area used by vendors and delivery drivers to enter the Lew Sterrett Justice Center complex. The truck ended up within the boundaries of the complex.

Deputies will be on duty outside the gates until the barriers can be fixed.

The name of the suspect wasn’t immediately released.
