(NBC) -

A naked man, who was jumping on cars in Tampa, Florida this morning, died after being subdued by police.

Tampa police say the man was running around on Dale Mabry Street and jumping on cars. 

He even banged his head so hard on the windshield of a car that it cracked. 

Police responded to the scene to subdue the man, who they say appeared to be on "some kind of mind-altering drug".

The man continued to fight officers in the police car, where police say he suffered some sort of medical issue. 

He was then taken to the hospital where he later died. 

Tampa police are not releasing information about how those officers subdued the man. 

"I am still trying to figure all that out, we are still investigating, I mean, we have to take it very serious investigation here because we had somebody die in police custody, so we are still investigating all of that," says Steve Hegarty, Tampa Police Spokesperson. 

Tampa police are examining surveillance videos from nearby businesses to figure out how the incident unfolded.
