37-year-old Boise arrested for driving his car into Ada County Courthouse Fountain

Jonathan J. Locksmith is being held in the Ada County Jail on a misdemeanor charge of reckless driving after he drove his car over the sidewalk and into the fountain in front of the Ada County Courthouse Sunday morning.

Deputies were called out to the courthouse, located at 200 W. Fort Street, in Boise just after 10:15 a.m. Sunday.

When deputies arrived, they found Locksmith’s car inside the fountain. Locksmith told investigators that he was upset at the court system and drove his car into on the fountain on purpose so he would be arrested.

Locksmith did not appear to be seriously injured. Deputies arrested him and booked him into the Ada County Jai. He is scheduled to make his initial court appearance Monday. Idaho court records show Locksmith has a misdemeanor battery charge from earlier this fall that has not yet been adjudicated.
