Another officer rushes in to help his colleague by grabbing the man in a headlock and after a brief struggle, the pair manage to get him on the ground.

As police struggle to detain him, the man can be heard in footage complaining that the handcuffs were too tight on him.

‘My wrist is killing me. I want to get up but I can’t get up,’ the man screams. 

The officers then struggle to help the man stand up as he continues to complain the handcuffs are on too tight.

‘Give me instructions, I’m listening… I’m listening, whatever you want,’ he says as the police officers are trying to lift him off the ground.

The officers instruct him on how to stand up but the man struggles and yells: ‘What am I… f***ing Arnold Schwarzenegger?’

‘How am I going to get up? On one toe?’ 

NSW Police told Daily Mail Australia the man was asked to move on following the crash on Thursday but he allegedly refused.
