OKLAHOMA CITY – Oklahoma City police say a 25-year-old man could face an array of charges after a bizarre series of events that ended when he allegedly punched a firefighter in the face.

Authorities were called to an injury accident in the area of N.W. 122nd St. and May Ave., after learning that a Crown Victoria collided with two vehicles, causing one of them to roll over.

Witnesses say the driver fled on foot and began taking off his clothing.

According to an affidavit, police say the man, who is 6’7″ and weighs 333 pounds, jumped on the hood of a stopped car.

The car’s windshield shattered and the hood suffered a bit of damage.

The man, later identified as 25-year-old James Harmon, allegedly ran into a fire station and punched a firefighter in the face.

Other firefighters tackled Harmon to the ground and held him until officers arrived.

According to the report, he allegedly told police that he was “on water,” which is a street term for PCP.

Harmon faces charges of destruction of private property, assault and battery on a city official and resisting arrest.

He could also face charges of leaving the scene of an injury accident, driving under the influence of drugs, driving without a state driver’s license, speeding, following too closely and disregarding a signal light.
