Rogers County officials said they arrested a woman who wanted to go to jail.
Mercedes Curley, a Rogers County woman, saw it as an investment that would unite her with her mother.
"She tore the dash apart," said Capt. Jerry Smittle.
He said she ripped out a few cables from deputy cruisers too.
"With the limited fleet that we have, this takes one out of the market for us," said Smittle.
Smittle said Curley didn't stop there.
"That vehicle over there, she broke the windshield on the pickup," said Smittle.
Smittle said she even broke a window on another vehicle, closer to the courthouse.
The county just got the new courthouse a couple of months ago.
Surveillance video shows Curley at 2 a.m., Sunday stepping toward the front doors. She had a Sharpie in her hand.
Deputies said Curley stood just below the camera when she wrote all over the courthouse.
She took aim at the county, the judge, and police with profanity-laced messages.
"When you're going to church Sunday morning, the last thing you want to see is the 'f word' all over the building," said Smittle.
Smittle said Curley was high on meth.
"Basically, she wanted to get put in prison with her momma," said Smittle.
FOX23 did some checking, and couldn't find anything on Curley's mother.
Curley didn't put up a fight when it was time for the cuffs.
"She'll get put in the same cell with her mom and life will be Kumbaya I guess," said Smittle.
Curley's bond has been set at $5,200.
