The dashcam video inside a Marion County Sheriff’s deputy’s patrol car captured the scene as Andrew Humphries, 18, was discovered walking nude along a Florida highway earlier this week.
According to News Channel 8, the deputy was concerned about Humphries’ well-being. The officer stopped to talk to him and while doing so the suspect walked past him to the driver’s side of the patrol car and tried to open it, but it was locked.
The deputy arrested Humphries and placed him in the back of the patrol car. Humphries did about $1,000 of damage to the inside of the patrol car by kicking a door and pulling on a metal cage, News Channel 8 reports.
Investigators also believe Humphries left the scene of an earlier accident in which he was the driver. After that accident, witnesses told police he walked up to another car, pulled on the door handle and tore it off when it wouldn’t open. He then urinated on the car.

Humphries was arrested and charged with property damage of $1,000 or more, one count of felony criminal mischief and one misdemeanor count of criminal mischief.
The Florida Highway Patrol is conducting an investigation into the vehicle accident.
