Authorities say a Maryland man rammed a gate at the CIA's headquarters in northern Virginia and then told a responding officer that the agency had recruited him.

Court documents state that Thomas Luu, who is charged with destruction of property, rammed the padlocked 8-foot chain link gate in a Ford Focus about 2 a.m. Monday, and drove about 75 feet into the compound.

Officer Matthew Davila of the CIA's Security Protective Service states he found Luu kneeling with his hands behind his head. Davila states that Luu said the CIA recruited him and he was trying to get the agency's attention.

The CIA declined to comment. Luu's attorney and a person who answered at a phone listing for Luu in Gaithersburg, Maryland, declined to comment.

WRC-TV first reported the charges.
