BRIDGEPORT - Bridgeport police say a man may have been on PCP when he smashed his car into several parked cars and a house, then got out of the vehicle and began taking off his clothes Monday night.

Police say the driver could be facing charges depending on what they find in his system.

Witnesses say the 30-year-old man came zigzagging down Colorado Avenue and struck several vehicles before hitting the home.

The witnesses say the driver had to be subdued by police before he was taken to the hospital.

Residents say the scene turned comical at times. Police say the man had to be restrained en route to the hospital because he kept trying to perform Michael Jackson's "Thriller" routine inside the ambulance.
