Video has been released of an Ohio driver intentionally ramming into a gas pump.

Police say 59-year old Michael Craig was in the parking lot of a convenience state in Painesville, Ohio on Saturday.

He suddenly took off and rammed his Buick SUV into a gas pump.

The pump became dislodged and smacked into a ford pickup truck with two adults and their child inside. Surveillance video released from the station shows the moment of impact.

A small fire broke out, however all three in the truck escaped unharmed.

The man who started it all ended up crashing into another vehicle and told people he had a gun and was going to kill everyone.

Police were able to arrest Craig. He did not have a gun.
