A 30-year-old man from Malaga was arrested early Thursday morning after crashing his car into the Malaga provincial police station.

The vehicle crashed into one of the two doors of the main building, and caused significant damage to the outer building and the interior.

The events took place around four in the morning. The investigation suggests that the crash was intentional, since the driver called 112 half an hour before, expressing his intention to take his own life, a claim that is still being investigated.

It is also being investigated whether the detainee - who has been transferred to a hospital in Malaga under police custody - could have been under the influence at the time of the event.
