CALVERTON, Md. - It's something you don't see every day.

A Maryland fire crew stopped at a store to grab some food on Wednesday and when they returned to their truck a naked man was on the top of their aerial ladder.

"Working with PGPD, firefighters maneuvered the ladder and eventually the man came down for a meeting with the police officers. It ended with a tasing," a local crime blog wrote.

Firefighters say the person "shouted threats and performed lewd acts to himself while climbing on the ladder bed".

After he was tased the man was reportedly taken to an area hospital.

Prince George's County police have released more details and say the man has been charged.

According to police, 24-year-old Mohamed Sulaiman Bah of Silver Spring allegedly shot a childhood friend inside a car while high on PCP. When Bah fled from the scene he went to Calverton Shopping Center, took off his clothing and climbed onto a fire truck, say police.

Police ordered him to come down but as you can see in the video, it took a taser to do it. One officer said Bah is only 5 feet 7 inches tall and 145 pounds, but mustered the strength of a 300 pound man while battling with police.  

Bah is charged with attempted murder, first degree assault and other related charges, according to police.
