Life insurance re-spawned me inside the battle arena and then this happened. The cruiser is still stuck there to this very day.

"Hate to tell you but there's this funny thing called a wall in front of you. It was designed to stop ships and no, driving straight at it won't work." Needless to say, he didn't listen to me.

This also occurs when Kate's cruiser is returning from the attack on a Black Market station. The standard AI isn't able to handle walls.

A simple solution to this would be for the walls to shut down when the Arena is not in operation.

By the way, Kate's cruiser also got stuck. Luckily, Katami's reappearance is based upon a set variable and not the cruiser's arrival at the arena station.

Can confirm. This appears to happen every single time that mission occurs.

My personal head-canon for that has always that he rides back to the arena with the player, since I almost invariably get back before Kate does.

But what if you don't dock with the destroyed station? He's rich so maybe he had a personal transporter or something that was confiscated. Would they even have that tech?

That mission has many glitches. For instance, even if the Black Market station(or, for that matter, the Molotok guarding it) is destroyed long before the mission begins, it proceeds normally.
