According to Fry himself and the police report, he wasn’t actually targeting Fox in the attack. He was angry at the police and made this desperate gesture to get the attention of the media as a whole. He wants the media to “do their job,” and apparently, that would entail reporting that he was the subject of some kind of massive conspiracy slash cover-up.
After he rammed his car in the news station, Fry scattered fliers outside the entrance. They were actually copies of an older WFAA article in which he was also mentioned. It was a report on a 2012 incident in which a man tried to ram a police cruiser with his car, before being fatally shot. Fry was a passenger in that car and he now believes that he was the real target cops were trying to shoot
On the pieces of paper, Fry had scribbled by hand words like “treason” and “witchery,” and “They tryed to kill me. And they missed. And hit him [sic],” and claims that the police had been “payed off [sic].”
With the fliers, Fry also dropped a suspicious looking bag that police feared might be a bomb. An on-site search proved that wasn’t the case.
As Fry was being led in handcuffs into Dallas County Jail, he turned to reporters and asked them to “Please don't let them punish me for trying to stay alive. They committed a high treason against me.”
Police spokeswoman Cpl. Debra Webb says Fry was very “agitated” when he was arrested, hinting an untreated mental issue could have prompted the attack.
