HOLLYWOOD (KTLA)-

A man was taken into custody Tuesday afternoon after brazenly smashing the windows of an LAPD car at one of the busiest intersections in Hollywood — and the incident was caught on video by a news photographer.

The man yelled “I love Jesus Christ” and began smashing the windows of a Los Angeles Police Department patrol car just before 1 p.m. at Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Avenue, according to KTLA’s Victor Vargas.

Vargas was shooting video in the area for an unrelated story when he heard the man yell out and then bash out the rear window of the black-and-white.

The clearly marked police car was parked along Hollywood Boulevard in front of the Hollywood & Highland shopping center and across from El Capitan Theatre.

At one point, the man who smashed the car looked directly at Vargas’ camera, and then back at the laptop.

Within minutes, police officers arrived and pulled the man down onto the Walk of Fame, handcuffing him. An actor costumed as Superman approached to watch the arrest.
