Upset about the cost of repairs to his car, a Wisconsin man attacked an employee of a tire dealership, earning himself an arrest and possibly serious penalties.
The 24-year-old West Allis, Wisc., man attacked the Tires Plus employee during an incident back in June. Police said the man was upset that repairs to his car exceeded $600, even though he authorized the work based on an estimate. When it came time to pay his bill, the man reported became irate and claimed he never approved the work and didn’t have the money to pay for it.
His application for a credit card to pay for the work also was rejected.
The man then reacted by allegedly headbutting the store employee and then punching a wall. As the dazed employee tried to call police, the man began apologizing for his act.
The man, however, apparently failed to show up for his day in court, where he was charged with one count of battery, one count of criminal damage to property and one count of disorderly conduct. If convicted, he faces up to 21 months in prison and $21,000 in fines.
Because he failed to appear, a bench warrant was issued for his arrest.
