GOLDEN, Colo. — A man rammed a Jefferson County Sheriff's Office patrol car and broke a glass window at the sheriff's headquarters Friday, officials said.

The incident happened shortly after 11 a.m. and the man was taken into custody at the scene. The suspect was identified Saturday as Samuel Livingston.

The sheriff's office said Livingston rammed a marked patrol car with his pickup truck and then used a silver bar to break a glass door at one of the entrances. Deputies, along with Golden police, took Livingston into custody.

Investigators determined that the items thrown through the glass into the entrance area could be combined to be explosive. Livingston was later booked in on charges of possession of explosives or incendiary devices, criminal mischief, and resisting arrest, and has a $500,000 bond.
