Los Angeles police arrested an unidentified man on Tuesday for allegedly smashing his way into several cars, including a patrol vehicle, from which he grabbed a laptop before apparently using it just feet away.

KTLA-TV reported that the man smashed a piece of metal against the patrol car’s windows, screaming, “I love Jesus Christ,” as witnesses — including a person dressed as Star Wars character Darth Vader — look on, before dropping the pipe, reaching into the car, and grabbing the laptop.

He then takes the laptop to a booth near the car and attempts to use it. KTLA also filmed officers taking the man into custody.

L.A. Weekly reported that the man also allegedly bashed the rear windows on three other cars. Police believe he picked the metal up at a nearby construction site.

Watch the bizarre incident, as filmed by KTLA on Tuesday, below.
