The police had been called out due to rowdy behavior in town and so no one was manning the station at the time, bb.is reports.
The man drove the car wildly around town, despite the icy roads, later leaving it parked on the sidewalk. The vehicle was found in a severely damaged state.
The suspect was arrested shortly afterwards, mbl.is reports. Police say that the man had a run in with them in town earlier in the evening.
