Turn that music down! No, how about I drive through City Hall instead!

This is just great:

WICHITA - The man who drove his car through City Hall last year was sentenced Wednesday to more than 10 years in prison.

Marcus Johnson, 33, faces 122 months of incarceration after crashing through a set of glass doors at City Hall in January 2008 and continuing through the building before slamming into the west wall of the parking garage.

His sentence includes time for convictions of criminal damage to property and two counts of criminal threats linked to the crash into City Hall, and one count of battery of a law enforcement officer later at the Sedgwick County Jail .

Authorities said Johnson became angered when a police officer told him to turn down the music in his car while he was parked at a south Wichita convenience store early on the morning of Jan. 7, 2008.

Johnson drove downtown, turned onto Main and then drove up a ramp into City Hall at an estimated 45 miles an hour.

The incident caused about $200,000 in damage and prompted the installation of temporary traffic barriers around the perimeter of the building grounds.

Permanent security measures for the grounds are scheduled to be implemented later this year.
Ok, it's not great because some nut did this. What is great is the time-lapse security camera footage posted of the incident at the following link:

Try to figure it out.

Spoiler:
Check out when people are walking down the hall and the time stamps. They have it edited to look like the car just barely missed everyone. My favorite shot is from 00:26 to 00:37 segment.

That's awesome!

Someone really needs to overdub that video with "Yackety Sax" and put it on YouTube.

It's not perfect, but here is one someone did:

I think this is the one time where 'Yakety Sax' isn't the best song choice.

You have to believe that man will be a hero in prison over the next 10 years.

When they say we drove through City Hall, they really mean through!

That city hall is amazingly well suited for driving a car through! Who knew it would have such wide hallways? Loved the not-so-clever time edits too. Reminded me of Homer Simpson appearing on Rock Bottom in "Homer Badman" with the changing clock in the background.

Note: If editing a video for this purpose, change/remove the time stamp!

I can't believe he didn't hit anybody, but that is fucking awesome.

I love the second-to-last one. There's a security gaurd standing around casually, probably thinking "nothing to see here..." and then, BAM!

i don't think they necessarily edited to make it look like he endangered specific people. i think it was more made to show how the general flow of foot traffic is and how he could have hurt/killed many people.

$200,000 in damage, but the laughs are priceless.

He must have been in the same area, but if you watch the timestamp, he walks out of frame, then it jumps 5 minutes to when the car crashes through! I think it was more edited to take out frames where nothing at all is happening though.
