The 26-year-old -- fondly known as ‘The Flying Tomato’ -- activated a fire alarm at the Loews Vanderbilt Hotel, and demolished a pay phone on the premises early Sunday, according to authorities.

As he tried to flee the scene, White allegedly kicked at a man who told him he'd called the police. After a short chase, the two collided and White was hurt when his head made contact with a fence.
