SAN DIEGO — A man was arrested and charged after intercepting a moving ambulance and later climbing on top of the hood and singing.

Video footage from Reggie Wallace, a witness on scene, shows a man run in front of a moving ambulance and block its path, at one point pretending to make a phone call, NBC 7 reported.

“I thought he was just going to wave and he walked in front of the ambulance and started flipping them off,” Wallace said. “He moved to the driver’s side of the ambulance, and they shortly start to drive away, and he gets back in front of the ambulance.”

The man then jumps on the hood of the ambulance and starts to sing.

Providers inside the rig called for police assistance, who were forced to use a stun gun on the man to remove him from the scene.

“Out of nowhere he gets aggressive and starts resisting arrest,” Wallace said. “They try to take him down, they had a lot of trouble with it.”

The man was loaded into the same ambulance he was arrested in front of, and is currently being held in the San Diego Central Jail on $250,000 bail.
