A man was taken to jail in Kalamazoo after smashing up a police cruiser.

A Kalamazoo Public Safety Officer was exiting the KDPS Building in the 1400 block of Howard Street around 4:30pm Sunday, when he saw a man smashing the windshield of a cruiser with a shovel.  Upon seeing the officer, the man placed the shovel down and asked officers to take him to jail, saying that he did what he did because he was upset with his girlfriend.

Officers obliged his request, and lodged the 48-year-old Kalamazoo resident at the County Jail without incident.
