MILWAUKEE (AP) — Police say two teen brothers are under arrest for crashing their parents’ pickup truck into a Milwaukee Police Department building.

Lt. Donald Baral tells the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that it happened early Sunday after the teens went for a joy ride in their parents’ truck without permission.

The brothers were driving around 2:40 a.m. Sunday when the driver lost control of the vehicle, drove up the sidewalk, hit two city-owned light poles and crashed into the side of the District 3 police station.

Baral says the driver wasn’t hurt, but the passenger was slightly injured and taken to the hospital. The truck was destroyed.

The driver had an instructional driving permit, and police suspect he was under the influence of drugs.

Baral says the parents support charging the teens.
