The arrest warrant claimed that Whisenhunt is suspected of accelerating his Toyota Camry toward a security guard on the station’s grounds “in an attempt to cause great bodily harm or death” on Thursday. 

The Arkansas man also damaged gates and fencing outside the plant’s protected area from driving his car through a fence.

According to the sheriff’s office, Whisenhunt was not authorized to be on the site, however, authorities have not revealed any information about the motivation.

Whisenhunt is accused of attempted murder, malicious injury to personal property, and unauthorized entry into an enclosed space.

He is also facing a hit-and-run charge resulting from a car accident near the factory on the same day as he allegedly was involved in a motor vehicle accident on Rochester Highway and failed to remain on the scene.
