Some guy tried to use the phone in the lobby of the Bismarck Police Department and it didn't go over very well.

In security footage released by the Bismarck Police Department, a man is seen walking into the police station and attempting to use a phone on the wall. Apparently the man's expectations of that phone were not met and he decided to smash it.

The Bismarck Police recommended that citizens not try to get in touch with the police in this manner:

There are a lot of ways to get our attention at the Bismarck Police Department. Smashing the phone in our lobby is definitely is one way, but not one we’d recommend! Suspect is facing charges for criminal mischief.

This was one of the most violent games of phone tag we've ever seen.
