A man who drove a car onto a sidewalk and to the front door of the federal courthouse on Mulberry Street in downtown Macon surrendered to authorities shortly after 11:30 a.m. Monday, officials said.

Napoleon Gray, 45, has a history of filing grievances at the clerk’s office at the courthouse, officials said. He was also wearing an ankle monitor when arrested.

The car was surrounded by a group of courthouse security officials and law enforcement officers. Gray held a knife to his throat before surrendering, officials said.

It was not immediately clear what prompted the episode.
