Man smashes federal building, courthouse windows


DULUTH - Duluth police arrested a man just after 6 a.m. Friday after eyewitnesses reported that he was smashing windows at the downtown Civic Center.

Witnesses said they heard a loud banging in the area and at first assumed some type of construction was going on. One maintenance worker said that after the man smashed windows at the courthouse doors, he sat on the nearby steps and waited for police to arrest him. The suspect used some type of metal bar, the worker said.
