MUSKEGON COUNTY , Mich., June 27 (UPI) -- A Michigan man who was claiming to be a resident of "Planet Zoltron" is facing a number of charges after he allegedly attacked a Muskegon County Sheriff deputy's cruiser with a four-foot metal pipe.

Officers were investigating reports about a man breaking into homes when they came across Calquan Dion Burr.

On the dash camera video, Burr can be seen charging the cruiser, jumping on the hood of the car and attacking the windshield.

"The officers rounds the corner and it is dark out - he had no time to react. The guy is already running at the car. He almost had zero time to respond and there was no time to avoid him," Lt. Shane Brown of the Muskegon County Sheriff's Department told WZZM-TV.

While the 20-year-old was being arrested, he told police that he could have "tackled that car and could have crushed it if he wanted to," according to the Muskegon Chronicle. "He also claimed he was from the Planet Zoltron and that his father sent him."

Burr appeared to be on "mind-altering drugs" and a witness said that he seemed "drunk or high and was talking about seeing blue orbits."

The suspect was charged with malicious destruction of property, damaging police property, assault and other charges.
