An African migrant wearing only underwear was apprehended after throwing concrete blocks and other projectiles down onto a busy street in France, according to reports.
The incident unfolded at around 9:30 a.m. on New Year's Day in the Opera district of Marseille.
Authorities were alerted that a man had scaled the front of a shop and was removing decorations and portions of the building's façade.
Officers arrived to find the suspect, clad only in white briefs, hurling dangerous objects into the thoroughfare from a height of around 10 feet.
The suspect struck multiple cops, injuring at least two in the melee.
Officers were unable to coax the man down but eventually managed to climb up and subdue him.
"Supported by the firefighters, the police placed the individual on a stretcher before putting him to safety on the ground. According to our information, the man was placed in police custody for violence against a person holding public authority," La Provence reported.
The suspect was identified as a Cameroonian national who reportedly demanded to speak to the public prosecutor or the consul of Cameroon during the rampage.
Military leaders fired off multiple incendiary letters last year, warning the Macron government of looming "civil war" if strong measures are not taken to regain control of a society spiraling into chaos.
