Bollard stops intruder at Utah military base

Suspect charged with destruction of property, unlawful entry upon a military installation


A 40-year-old man faces charges of destruction of property and unlawful entry upon a military installation after he allegedly tried to ram his sport utility vehicle through a blocked entry point at Utah’s Hill Air Force Base last month.

According to published reports, the man reportedly pulled up to base’s south gate and was asked by a base officer for identification and didn’t respond. The suspect was asked again for identification and then responded that he didn’t have any, at which point he was told to stay in the vehicle.

The man, however, hit the accelerator and crashed into a Delta TT210 bollard, which was activated by the base officer. The suspect, who subsequently took off on foot, was apprehended a short later.
