An impatient driver in central China was arrested after he was filmed while boarding and breaking a traffic light in the middle of a road.

The man felt he had been waiting too long at the red light in the city of Jinshi and decided to take the matter into his own hands, according to local police.

The 36-year-old man, later identified by his last name Xin, was filmed running to the island of the traffic light and violently hitting the post.

The bizarre incident occurred at approximately 11 pm on August 20 in Hunan province, and local police finally caught the suspect on Wednesday after a two-week chase.

The man had been waiting for the light for about two minutes before getting impatient. Before the incident, he told the police that he was involved in an argument with a friend and that he was "in a bad mood".

Traffic chambers at the crossroads between Jiuli Avenue and Shuangji Road captured the suspect by running to the temporary traffic light in the middle of the intersection.

He jumps and hooks the pole with his right arm, knocking it down hard, causing it to crash to the ground.

The apparently happy driver then returns to his vehicle outside of the camera jack and leaves.

Xin was convicted of destroying state property and was detained for five days. He was also fined, according to a press release from Jinshi Security Bureau.

The police also warned the public about any irrational behavior that could endanger the safety of other people.
