Car Rams Into FBI Office Gates, Suspect Hospitalized and Arrested

A man was arrested on Monday afternoon after police said he tried to enter the FBI Atlanta field office through a gate for reasons unknown.

Just after noon, according to the FBI, a vehicle that was cleared to enter the Chamblee, Georgia, facility was making its way onto the property through a guarded security gate, WAGA-TV reported.

That was when a man driving a red SUV tried to piggyback his way onto the property behind the authorized vehicle.

The man was not successful in the attempt to enter the premises, and his vehicle was stuck after crashing into the gate.

WAGA reported two FBI agents who were exiting the facility when the incident occurred got out and subdued the man. He was then turned over to local authorities.

Video from the Atlanta Fox affiliate shared by Fox News showed the vehicle was stuck at the gated entrance as bomb technicians searched it.

The man had no weapons or explosives on him or in the vehicle, FBI officials said.

The SUV sat at the gate for roughly four hours before it was ultimately towed away around 4 p.m. local time on Monday.

Why the suspect attempted to enter the bureau facility in the first place remained unknown Tuesday.

The FBI said only that the man had no business on the property and was not affiliated with the agency.

He was placed in the custody of the Dekalb County Police Department, which is in charge of the investigation.

On Tuesday morning, the department identified the suspect as Ervin Lee Bolling, according to WAGA.

He was expected to be hit with state and federal charges related to the incident.

CBS News reported the man was taken for a mental health evaluation at an area hospital after he was detained.

Dekalb detectives spent Monday afternoon and evening securing search warrants in their investigation.

Chamblee is about 13 miles from Downtown Atlanta.

A Note from Our Deputy Managing Editor:


I heard a chilling comment the other day: “We don’t even know if an election will be held in 2024.” 


That wasn’t said by a conspiracy theorist or a doomsday prophet. No, former U.S. national security advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn said that to the founder of The Western Journal, Floyd Brown.


Gen. Flynn’s warning means that the 2024 election is the most important election for every single living American. If we lose this one to the wealthy elites who hate us, hate God, and hate what America stands for, we can only assume that 248 years of American history and the values we hold dear to our hearts may soon vanish.


The end game is here, and as Benjamin Franklin said, “We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately.”


All of this means that without you, it’s over. We have the platform, the journalists, and the experience to fight back hard, but Big Tech is strangling us through advertising blacklists, shadow bans, and algorithms. Did you know that we’ve been blacklisted by 90% of advertisers? Without direct support from you, our readers, we can’t continue the fight.


Can we count on your support? It may not seem like much, but a Western Journal Membership can make all the difference in the world because when you support us directly, you cut Big Tech out of the picture. They lose control. 


A monthly Western Journal Membership costs less than one coffee and breakfast sandwich each month, and it gets you access to ALL of our content — news, commentary, and premium articles. You’ll experience a radically reduced number of ads, and most importantly you will be vitally supporting the fight for America’s soul in 2024.


We are literally counting on you because without our members, The Western Journal would cease to exist. Will you join us in the fight?
