An Indianapolis man barricaded himself in a house, then danced on the roof as a fire was raging inside Monday, CNN affiliate WRTV reports.
Indianapolis Metropolitan Police say 25-year-old Matthew Russ took his ex-girlfriend’s keys, stole her car and crashed it into a pole.
Police said they found Russ sitting in a chair in the driveway holding a knife.
Russ then went into the house and onto the roof with the knife in his hand.
Police used rubber bullets to try to get Russ down but was not effective.
Russ came back out on the roof and was captured by news cameras smiling and dancing with smoke and flames billowing behind him.
Police believe Russ may have lit the home on fire as well.
Police had to use an aerial ladder, and stun gun to take Russ into custody.
