Man Threatened Officers, Drove Into Police Station Lobby, Authorities Say


A man drove his car through the Havre de Grace police station Sunday night after threatening police officers, authorities in northeastern Maryland said.

Timothy Kahl, 24, called the police department threatening to go to the station to kill an officer, police said in a social media post. Officers found him parked in a car just a mile from the station, but police said when they approached the car, Kahl tried to run them over and struck several vehicles.

Kahl then headed to the police station, where he drove his car through the front doors and into the lobby, police said.

He got out and tried to attack officers, but police said they stunned him and he was taken to the hospital.

No officers were hurt.

“There is a dispatcher inside to the left, but the area where he crashed in, there was nobody inside, thank God, because there is only about a foot on either side of the vehicle that you could stand in, and if there were somebody in there, he would have hit somebody,” Cpl. Ken Terry told WBAL-TV.

Kahl is charged with two counts of attempted first-degree murder, two counts of first-degree assault, reckless endangerment and three counts of malicious destruction of property with a value greater than $1,000.
