A masked man crashed his tractor trailer into the Bunny Ranch brothel in Nevada on Thursday.
Brian Burns, 40, of Reno, was arrested on charges of assault with a deadly weapon, destruction of property and possession of stolen goods.
Owner Dennis Hof described the “terror” scene brothel on the website. “A disgruntled trucking company employee wearing a full body armor and supported a stolen 18-wheeler truck to the entrance of the Bunny Ranch brothel in an apparent sadistic attempt to gain notoriety. Fortunately, no one was injured as a result of this maniacal terror, the perpetrator was apprehended by the police.”
Court says there were about 45 people in the building at the time of the early morning crash, but no injuries reported. Photos of the scene placed on the Court’s website showed heavy damage to the front of the building.

He was arrested on the scene and is currently being held in the Lynn County Detention Facility. The Reno Gazette Journal reports that He was arrested on May 17 and charged with battery and conspiracy to destroy property and was released.
Damage to the brothel is almost $400,000, but the establishment remains open for the company says Court.
Fox News spoke with the Court about the experience. “After 61 years, we are by all of this, but we still have not seen anything like this.” Asked if he got a description of the suspect, the Court says he saw his ID. “I was on the property and the police called me and said someone backed a semi into the building with a full body armor and a mask. He was willing to take care of business. They were just him in the car when I saw him. That looks like a terrorist to me.”

Court also noted what could be the motive of Burns, the defendant. “No one gives a damn if you go to a 7-11 or Dairy Queen, but if you run it in the bunny ranch, it’s a global story.”
Misty Matrix, a representative of the ranch said she heard a loud bang and people ran everywhere. “It was crazy. It was so scary.”
