RIVERDALE, Utah -- A man was booked into the Weber County Jail Wednesday after he allegedly drove a pickup truck through three sheds in a Home Depot lot.

Police arrested 38-year-old Dale Arave, who they say caused an estimated $22,000 in damage. Arave also totaled his truck in the process.

Detectives are still investigating the motive behind the rampage. Police say his family told them he’d been drinking.

"He’d told his wife that he was a little despondent and was unhappy,” says Riverdale Police Lieutenant James Ebert. “He was going to leave and never come back and he was going to try and make law enforcement officers shoot him.“

A YouTube video shows a pickup truck, allegedly driven by Arave, ramming through three sheds before getting stuck on an island in the parking lot.

Police also found several loaded guns in Arave’s truck. Ebert says given the busy, public location, they’re grateful no one was injured in the destruction
