Oak Creek police called after customers vie for spot at gas station pump

Dec. 12, 2012

Two customers refused to move for the other for a spot at a gas station pump in Oak Creek.

According to the Oak Creek police report:

An employee called police after two customers, a 69-year-old Franklin man and an 18-year-old Oak Creek man, pulled up to a gas pump at the same time and neither one would move for the other to access the gas pump at Speedway, 8667 S. Howell Ave., shortly before 1 p.m. Dec. 8.

No one became disorderly but the two were upset with one another and neither one was willing to switch pumps.

The Franklin man switched pumps after a passenger in the Oak Creek man's car prepaid $20 on the pump, and no further police assistance was needed.
