Rip-and-Run at the Gas Pump
Occurred on June 30, 2022 / Jacksonville, Florida, USA
Info from Licensor: "This lady pulled up to get gas. At this gas station, you have to lift the handle in order to pump. She didn’t realize that, so she assumed that the pump was not working she got mad and decided to leave but she did not remove the handle from her vehicle. She was mad that she couldn’t use the pump so she sped off really quickly ripping violently the pump hose from the actual pump. It was so loud it sounded like a car crash. I ran out the door to find out what was happening and another customer was yelling at her trying to get her to stop. I finally was able to get the lady to stop that’s when she handed me the hose I asked her for insurance information and she made a bunch of noises as you can see in the video and then said let me pull into the shade and proceeded to speed off out of the parking lot. I did call the police and of course, I have her tag number so they were able to find her. The state attorney did call me and asked me if I wanted to press charges or just have her pay for the damages I opted just for her to pay for the damages. I’m still waiting on her to pay for the damages. The repairs cost me almost $2,000. People in the post are going hard at me because everybody claims to know how to fix the pump, but every pump is not the same, and she ripped not just the hose off but also broke the attachment that usually breaks away and dented the pump, so there was a lot of damage. I replaced and paid for all of the damages already."
