Thirty-four-year-old James Campbell of Edwardsburg, Michigan, faces felony charges that include resisting law enforcement with a vehicle.

The Elkhart Truth reports Campbell was arrested Friday following a police pursuit.

That chase began after Campbell allegedly backed a van into the front doors of the Elkhart Fire Department, damaging the building’s metal door frames and shattering a window next to the door. He allegedly tried first to crash the van twice into a nearby police building.
