(CBS) PITTSBURGH - William Moody, a 71-year-old man angered about his blocked driveway, was arrested last Friday after fighting with police and throwing his dentures at them, officials say, according to CBS Pittsburgh.

Moody, of North Strabane Township, Pa., allegedly became extra "moody" when a car involved in an accident, and a passerby offering to help, pulled into his driveway Friday afternoon.

Police say Moody was angry because the cars had hemmed in  him and his wife in for about 10 minutes.

When police arrived on the scene, Moody reportedly became combative and fought with police until they handcuffed him.

Then, they say, Moody faked a heart attack and when police un-cuffed him, he fought with the officers again.

The station reports that because Moody had a pre-existing heart condition, he was taken to a local hospital to be checked out as a precaution.

He was later transported to the police station where he continued to fight and even threw his dentures, chewing tobacco and wrist watch at officers.

Moody now faces multiple charges, including resisting arrest, assault and making terroristic threats.

He is scheduled to appear in court next Monday.
