CUMBERLAND, Wis. (AP) — Police in a northwestern Wisconsin community say a man angry with a citation issued to a family member deliberately smashed through the front entrance to city hall, narrowly missing an officer.

Cumberland Police Chief Heather Wolfe says an officer was sitting inside the building approximately 20 feet from where the man's vehicle crashed through the wall. That officer was not injured.

The man was arrested and booked into jail on probable cause criminal damage to property, negligent operation of a motor vehicle and driving while intoxicated. Police have sent the case to the Barron County District Attorney's Office for consideration of formal charges.

Authorities did not state the nature of the citation that angered the man.
