SEATTLE (AP) - Police in Seattle arrested an intoxicated, armed man after he reportedly jumped behind the wheel and tried to commandeer a UPS delivery truck.

On their website, police say the real delivery driver found a man who appeared to be under the influence of drugs in the driver’s seat of her truck after she stopped Tuesday morning at a business on Aurora Avenue North. She had the keys but the man was shaking the steering wheel as if he were trying to drive away.

When the driver tried to get him out of the truck, he took several swings at her, hitting her arm. The woman says the man then threatened to shoot her.

Police arrived, grabbed a gun out of the 32-year-old man’s backpack and arrested him. They found a second gun in one of his bags, along with tools commonly used by burglars.

He was booked into jail for investigation of robbery, assault and harassment.
