    Man told police he had hoped to hurt himself in crash.

    Police say a man was arrested on a charge of felony criminal mischief after driving his car into the lobby of the Port Arthur Police Department.

    The 53-year-old man drove into the lobby of the department in downtown Port Arthur on Sunday night. Before being booked on the charge, the man was taken to the hospital.

    Sgt. Steve Davis tells the Port Arthur News, "At the hospital is when he told us he was hoping to harm himself and he drove through there intentionally."

    The damage in the lobby extended into the front desk area.
