Maryland police had a harm time arresting a man high on PCP with “superhuman strength,”

Marcus Anthony Moratelli refused to be subdued by officers, even after they repeatedly used tasers, batons and pepper spray, at a Riverdale Park McDonald’s on Friday, police said.

Moratelli was high on PCP, making him “oblivious to pain” and filled with “superhuman strength,” Riverdale Park Police Chief David Morris told WTOP.

McDonald’s staff called police after Moratelli started arguing with himself, punching his table and throwing chairs, said Ricky Martinez, who filmed the arrest.

Before police arrived, Moratelli then took off his shirt and acted “like he wants to fight with someone,” Martinez wrote in a video description. He also appeared to be hallucinating.

“We don’t know if he’s going to hurt someone because this man already seemed agitated,” Martinez wrote, noting he was with his mom and two younger siblings in the “packed” eatery.

As a taser clicked with voltage against Moratelli’s body, Moratelli walked away from an officer who arrived on scene, video shows. He did not get on the ground, even after getting hit with a baton in the leg and after another officer lunged at him from behind.

The officers soon brought Moratelli outside after using two tasers, and he appears bloody when the camera locates him again.
