The Associated Press
Seattle Police say a man threw a big rock through the glass doors of the North Precinct police station on Thursday night.
The man waited calmly outside the station after throwing the rock at about 10:40 p.m. The rock broke through the inner door as well and landed in the inner lobby of the station, said Detective Renee Witt.
He told officers he was from Guatemala and committed the crime because he wanted to go home.
Witt says the man was arrested without incident. He has been booked into King County Jail for investigation of malicious mischief.
