Authorities say a man was arrested Monday after attempting to storm the FBI office in Atlanta, ramming his vehicle into the building’s gates.

The man, who was not affiliated with the FBI and has not been identified, allegedly drove to the facility tailing an employee, attempting to bypass security gates just after noon on Monday. When security barriers were raised, he rammed into them. Nearby FBI agents quickly apprehended the man, the agency said.

The FBI said that his motive is unknown and that the agency is working with local law enforcement on criminal charges. As a precaution, a bomb team cleared the vehicle, the agency said.
