Neighbors told HPD the noise started around 3am when the gunman, in his 30s, threw objects from his balcony, screamed and bared his penis.
Police say he threw rocks and broken bottles while threatening his neighbors in Block 3939 of Synott. No injuries were reported.
Upon arrival, the man verbally threatened to shoot police officers if they entered his home, police say.
Officials assume the man has been under the influence of drugs for days. The naked man threatened to set things on fire and claimed to be a god, investigators say.
SWAT and other law enforcement agencies used chemical munitions before arresting him.
The suspect declined treatment by the Houston Fire Department, officials say.
The suspect faces three charges of retaliation and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Police say he has no criminal record.
