SACRAMENTO - A 32-year-old man was arrested Wednesday afternoon after he smashed up a cop car and fire truck with a barbell, say police.

Sacramento Police Department reports stated that firefighters sought police assistance during a medical aid call in which Vanthon Som became extremely aggressive towards them and broke the windows of their fire truck with a large barbell.

The first officer arrived at the scene on the 8200 block of Arroyo Vista Dr. around 2:43 p.m. and Som turned his aggression on her, smashing the back window of her patrol car with his barbell, said police.

According to police, backup arrived and eventually managed to subdue Som with beanbag rounds and a stun gun. He was then transported to a local hospital with minor injuries, medically cleared and booked on charges of resisting, assault on an officer, and vandalism.

No officers were injured during the event.
