A man who shot his best friend in the face while high on PCP – and was cornered by police on top of a fire truck naked and screaming profanities -- was sentenced to 16 years in prison on Tuesday.
On May 15, 2013, police found a naked Mohamed Sulaiman Bah, 25, of Silver Spring standing on top of a Prince George's County fire truck screaming at onlookers, reports WUSA TV.
Police had to Taser Bah in order to take him into custody, according to officials.
Prior to his arrest, Bah was riding in a car with the victim and a witness when he began acting in an erratic manner. The witness told police that Bah, who was in the passenger seat, turned around and shot his friend, who was sitting in the back seat.
The shooting happened in the 11900 block of Beltsville Drive, Patch earlier reported. Bah fled from the scene and made his way to the Calverton Shopping Center, where he removed his clothing and climbed onto a fire department ladder truck.
Bah "refused to comply with police orders to come down from the truck and remained there for several minutes acting in a belligerent manner," police said.
Several minutes of the fire truck standoff – and profane comments from onlookers -- were captured in a YouTube video by user crotti2009.
Bah pleaded guilty on Feb. 20. He had originally been charged with attempted murder, first degree assault, and other charges, according to Prince George's County police.Warning: The attached video is graphic and contains nudity and cursing.
