Saudi daredevil v speeding truck: Bizarre viral stunt ends in arrest (VIDEO, PHOTOS)
A Saudi man who became a viral hit after jumping right in front of an oncoming truck as part of a dangerous stunt has been arrested over the incident.
Nail-biting footage posted to social media shows the man inexplicably jump from the bonnet of his parked car onto a busy road right in front of a speeding truck, forcing it to move into the next lane to avoid hitting him.
The driver blares his horn as the daredevil throws his hands up in the air and leaps in front of the vehicle before jumping back towards the side of the road, somehow unscathed.
