'South Carolina is crazy': McDonald's staff watch in shock as homeless man smashes brick through windows and breaks glass with his HEAD then waits for cops to arrest him

This is the moment staff and customers in a South Carolina McDonald's watched as a homeless man smashed up the front windows then waited for police to arrest him.
The man is seen on video taking a brick to break glass as shocked spectators urge staff to call law enforcement to detain him.
At the same time onlookers are concerned for the man who later smashes another area of the fast food chain's window using only his forehead.

'He's going to kill himself,' one woman is heard yelling in the clip filmed from a witness inside the restaurant.
When the cell phone recording begins the man knocks on the door and window to get the attention of people inside the McDonald's branch then begins throwing stones.
At first onlookers sound amused then realized real damage could be done and begin to question where the cops they called earlier could be.
After destroying multiple areas of the glass front, the shouting man then plants himself on top of a bush and patiently waits for law enforcement.
He then smashes glass with a brick and uses his forehead to break the windows if the venue as customers stand back. One window near a children's play area is pictured broken

The voice of the woman's recording the incident states that the commotion began when 'he grabbed my hand when he asked for mustard'.
She adds: 'Y'all are blaming this on mental health problems. That's crack. That's heroin.'
But another concerned woman warns the person filming to quieten down predicting the man will get upset if he hears.
'Don't say that to him because that makes him angry,' a woman says, noting that he comes in regularly and predicting he'll simply return are temporarily being taken to a psych ward.
The camera shows the restaurant covered in shards of glass and background voices call the situation 'scary'.

Later in the 10-minute-long video the witnesses are appalled when a policeman finally shows up six minutes into when they first began recording the man who appeared to have earlier been locked out.
However a woman explains that the door was in fact not locked.
They then note how only one officer arrived to detain him in what seems to be a lengthy process getting him into a car.
'He probably did that just to get somewhere to stay,' one man is heard saying as staff continue to take customer's orders.
Staff express their frustration at how difficult it will be to find someone to fix the windows on the same day. The woman filming points out that police are quick to stop people but take an alarming long time to respond to a scene like this. 
'South Carolina is crazy', she adds. 
Some people who recognized him suggested the homeless man may have been on drugs or suffered mental health problems
Spectators claimed he could have caused the messy scene in order to secure a place to stay for the night
