News video:OKLAHOMA CITY,October 16/08: A man who had grown tired of waiting for a local road to reopen because of a serious wreck got out of his car, stripped and then attacked a paramedic on Thursday, and an Eyewitness News 5 photojournalist caught it on tape.
"I kind of glanced to see where I could see him take a step. I kind of had him in my vision, and as soon as I moved, I thought maybe I shouldn't have moved. I glanced over to see him take a swing at me," said EMSA paramedic Jason Duncan.
He said he's sore but will be OK.
Police said they believe the man got upset because roads near Britton Road and Midwest Boulevard were closed. They believe he had just tired of waiting for them to reopen.
Officers and paramedics worked to get the man to the ground. Even there, the man screamed at officers saying they were going to have to kill him.
The man was arrested and taken to jail, but officers have not released his name.
Police said he could face assault and battery charges for attacking a city official and a police officer.
Two people were injured in the wreck, which happened when two pickup trucks collided. The injured were flown to local hospitals, but there is no word as to how badly they were hurt.
