WATCH: Man asked to leave Seattle restaurant throws ‘no parking’ sign into window

SEATTLE – Beth’s Cafe in Seattle said a man who was asked to leave the restaurant early Sunday hurled a “no parking” street sign through the diner’s window – sending glass flying inside as people were eating.

The 24-hour restaurant near Green Lake shared surveillance video with KIRO 7 in hopes of someone identifying the man who is seen on video quickly leaving in a car driven by someone else as people ran out of the restaurant.

Video shows man attacking parking enforcement officer in downtown Seattle

Video sent to KING 5 shows a man ripping a sunroof off a vehicle before attacking a Seattle parking enforcement officer.

The incident happened just after 5:30 p.m. Thursday in stand-still rush hour traffic at 2nd Avenue and Spring Street. Matt Reynolds, who sent KING 5 the video, said he started recording after the man jumped on his car, damaging it.

It was like he was on a mission like somebody might have been chasing him or he was going somewhere, but [when] the second the cop interacted with him, everything changed,” he said.

It’s seemed appropriate to use longer vacations for faraway places. Seattle, in our opinion, was perfect for a weekend travel. This year, we finally decided to make this trip happen. Initially, long Memorial Day weekend was set as our ideal date for all the best things to do in Seattle.
