Do Not Drive Your Truck Into A Gas Station Instead Of Prepaying

A man in Alabama has been charged with attempted murder and resisting arrest after allegedly driving his truck into a gas station. According to Jefferson County police, the suspect was angry that the only pump available was pre-pay only.

[Jefferson County Chief Deputy Randy] Christian said the service station had a pre-pay only system and Mayes’s pump had not been turned on because he hadn’t paid yet.

“You are going to die and go to hell,” the chief deputy quoted Mayes as telling the store clerk.

I didn’t think that prepay pumps were that hard to use.
