A man stripped down to his skivvies and went on a destructive rampage inside one of the fanciest Italian restaurants in town on Thursday night.

Kishane Almendarez, 29, rushed into Beverly Hills' Enoteca Drago destroying everything he could in just three or four minutes. He's a big guy—about 6 feet tall and weighing around 300 pounds—and he was able to do a lot of damage: he smashed more than 50 wine bottles, a TV screen, a mirror and wine glasses.

It happened suddenly around 10 p.m. on Thursday night at a time when about 10 employees and 20 customers were inside, according to ABC 7. The whole thing was caught on a fuzzy cell phone video. You can see customers on the video scurrying to get out of Almendarez's path. No one was hurt.

Police say Almendarez then ran out the back door of the restaurant, jumped onto a car and smashed a windshield with his hands. Police tased Almendarez before arresting him. He was transported to a hospital where he was treated for minor injuries. He's facing felony vandalism charges.

One of the customers told ABC: "This is not the kind of place this kind of thing happens. I come here every weekend, and to hear about that is shocking, right? When you look around and see the damage that is left behind, it's the kind of thing that you take with you."
