Tire Employees Charged in Alleged Customer Beating

According to local news reports, Police in Fayetteville, N.C., have charged two employees of a local tire store with ethnic intimidation and simple assault after a customer claimed they beat him up when he tried to return a defective tire.

The customer told police that he bought a tire Monday from Skibo Tires and tried to return it the next day after noticing that it had a cut in it. He claimed store workers refused to exchange the tire, and they allegedly started beating Parrish and using racial slurs after he asked to talk with the store manager, the customer told investigators.

Facing charges are Eddie Willard Jr., 29, and Cody Jackson Razor, 22, both of Fayetteville. Local reports state Willard is listed in court documents as the manager of Skibo Tires, while Razor is an employee there.
