An Oklahoma City man is arrested following an unusual assault Thursday night.

Police say the suspect had been harassing a local FedEx driver in the neighborhood near NW 31st and Penn.

The suspect allegedly parked his car behind the FedEx truck, preventing the delivery driver from leaving the dead end street.

"He was like 'What's in the truck?'" said Kathleen Baker. "He said 'Give me a package and I'll back up or give me a smoke and I'll back up.' Kids games, like I'll do this if you give me this."

That's when neighbors like Kathleen came out to help and called police.

After officers arrived, the situation turned violent.

"He saw the cops and that was it," said Baker. "I was like oh no it's on."

The suspect allegedly tried to drive over one of the officers before police broke out his window and pulled the suspect out of the car.

"He was trying to run down the cop. I thought he was going to shoot. I thought Bradley is going to get shot tonight," said Baker.

Luckily for the suspect Brad Maritt, officers didn't pull the trigger, but they did take him to jail.

Still, the suspect didn't seem to care.

"He thought it was funny. He was laughing and smiling," said Baker. "It was kind of scary when you're not used to seeing it. It was wild."

The suspect was booked into jail on charges of assault with a deadly weapon, assaulting a police officer and DUI.
