Phoenix police say that on April 30 43-year-old Jeremy Eric Jensen was crossing 7th Avenue near Indian School Road carrying a cement block on his shoulder.

A driver reportedly slowed down so he wouldn't hit Jensen., but when Jensen passed the car, he allegedly turned around, lifted the block over his head and threw it through the windshield of the car. Police say the block hit the driver in the chest, before landing in his lap.

Jensen then walked into a bar across the street. When police arrived, Jensen reportedly walked up to an officer in the parking lot saying, " I'm the person you’re looking for."

Police say Jensen admitted to his actions but showed no remorse saying, "He would be out of jail in 12 hours."

Jensen has had vehicle-related trouble before. In 2010 a Maricopa County Sheriff’s Deputy was working security at a Scottsdale nightclub and confronted Jensen, whose Taxicab was illegally parked. After refusing to move his vehicle the deputy attempted to arrest Jensen and reached inside the car. Jensen allegedly grabbed the deputy's arm and accelerated, dragging the deputy about 120 feet.

At the time, Jensen told ABC15 that the deputy never identified himself as a deputy but he was sorry for dragging him. 

He was later convicted of endangerment and given probation.
