Driver Hits Federal Investigator, Plows Into O.C. Federal Building in Alleged Deliberate Attack
A driver with an alleged grudge against the government struck and injured a federal investigator Thursday before slamming into the exterior of a federal building in Orange County, authorities said.
About 4:30 p.m., the driver struck the investigator outside the Chet Holifield Federal Building in Laguna Niguel and crashed into a maintenance garage near the side of the facility, according to a law enforcement source who spoke on the condition of anonymity.
The driver, identified as Geoffrey Rickner, 45, of Laguna Niguel, was allegedly motivated by antipathy for the federal government, according to the source, who was not authorized to speak on the record about the incident.
The driver was taken into custody at the scene, FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said. Both the driver and the injured federal employee were taken to a hospital in unknown condition.
