According to a CFD official, the fire truck was parked sideways on Octavia Avenue, and firefighters were using the truck’s lights to help EMS find a possibly violent man in the neighborhood.

A suspected drunken driver jumped in a car, struck the fire truck several times, and fled the scene.

Police say the unknown man also tried to hit several police cars and almost struck several police officers and firefighters.

Officers were called to the Gas USA at the 16000 block of Euclid for a man flipping out a pump.

According to the report, when police found the man, he was seen outside of his car, shadow boxing.

Police say the man tried to leave the area, but a fire truck and an EMS blocked him in.

The man reportedly rammed both the firetruck and the EMS before squeezing his vehicle out.

The vehicle was later found unoccupied on a portion of Euclid.

Police say they observed a half-empty bottle of liquor on the back seat floor.

Cleveland Police are searching for him now.

There were no injuries reported.
