Utah Man Charged With Ramming Minivan Into FBI Building Gate

A Utah man who briefly took a hostage at an FBI office eight years ago is facing new charges after prosecutors say he rammed his car into the main security gate of the agency’s building to drawn agents’ attention. Robert Joseph Hibbard of Midvale was charged with one of destruction of government property in a complaint filed Monday. Authorities say he crashed his minivan into a metal gate Sunday afternoon after unsuccessfully trying to reach an agent. No attorney was listed for him Tuesday. Hibbard briefly forced a man to take him to a downtown FBI office at knifepoint in 2012.
