A Colorado man was paranoid that people were following him so he drove straight into a police station for help

Getting followed by strangers can be scary stuff. But is it scary enough to send your truck barreling straight through the front doors of a police station?

Well, no. But this guy thought otherwise:

A Colorado man "intentionally" plowed his pickup truck through the front doors of a police station after he claimed people were "following him," police said.

Nathan David Chacon, 45, smashed his 2007 Chevrolet Silverado through glass doors and into the lobby of the Grand Junction Police Station, coming to a stop at a counter inside around 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday, shocking footage released by the department shows.

There were 11 employees working in offices behind the counter at the time, according to Chacon's affidavit. Nobody was injured.

You got to chuckle: Every one of these cops came out locked, loaded and ready to roll.

You can't blame 'em!

As it turns out, the driver appears to have been a little bit, uh, unwell:

According to the affidavit, there have been at least 90 calls for Chacon over the last few years, during which he reported "strange happenings that have been unfounded."

He had called police multiple times in days leading up to the crash and would swear at officers on the phone and then hang up out of frustration, according to the arrest affidavit. It's not clear what he had reported to them.

I just hope for the police station's sake he had car insurance too.
