Police have released disturbing video of a “drug crazed” man crashing his car through the window of a Wal-Mart in San Jose, CA. The incident, which took place last Easter Sunday, resulted in the arrest of 33-year-old Haamid Ade Zaid. The man was reportedly high on meth at the time of the incident, with police describing his behavior as “paranoid” and “bizarre.”

After crashing his car through the store, Zaid allegedly got out and began beating three shoppers and a staff member with a metal bar. He was eventually tackled by other shoppers and restrained with belts until police could arrive. He has since been charged with two counts of attempted murder, four counts of assault with a deadly weapon, and two counts of felony vandalism.

Police said they released the video with hopes of seeking out new information as well as the identities of some of the victims. "There may be some questions that are still unanswered," said San Jose Police officer Albert Morales. "Obviously the District Attorney's Office and investigators felt it was important to speak out to the people who were present that day to gather info."

Shockingly, this isn’t the first time that Zaid committed this kind of incident while on drugs. Last December, he drove his car through the glass doors of a gas station and was charged with two counts of hit and run and possession of meth.
