Police have arrested a man in Los Angeles after surveillance video allegedly showed him pushing a random person in front of an oncoming truck on a downtown street Wednesday.

In the surveillance video, acquired by Los Angeles ABC station KABC, a man is seen sitting on a bench by the sidewalk. He jumps toward one woman and startles her, before sitting back down.

But as the next passerby, a man in a suit, walks past, the man jumps off the bench and shoves him into the street right as a box truck is pulling up. The truck manages to slam on the brakes to avoid running over the man lying in the street, but he’s still caught under the front wheel.
