Video footage shows the man destroying his BMW’s windscreen at a set of traffic lights on the A10 in Enfield, north London.

A motorist parked nearby said police arrived moments later and subsequently shot the man twice with a Taser.

The footage shows an officer standing by the side of the convertible pointing a Taser towards the driver, with another officer standing nearby.

After the driver restarts his attack on the car’s screen, the first police officer fires the device at the man.

Another eyewitness told the Mirror Online: "I pulled up at the traffic lights and the middle-aged white man picked up the baseball bat and started smashing the windscreen of his car.

"Pieces of glass were flying at my car. I had my daughter and her friend in the car – they were terrified.

"It all happened so fast. He was clearly a danger to the public.”

A Metropolitan Police spokesperson said: "Police were called at 12.50pm on Sunday, 21 October to a collision in Great Cambridge Road at the junction with Lincoln Road, Enfield.

"Officers attended and detained a man, aged in his 30s. A Taser was deployed by officers detaining the man.

"The man has been taken to hospital as a precaution."
