Fight breaks out after clerk refuses cigarettes
A gas station clerk and a 20-year-old woman reportedly began fighting after the clerk refused to sell the customer cigarettes early Friday morning.
According to an incident report, authorities were called out just after midnight to the Kum and Go on Dave Ward Drive in reference to a fight at the gas station. The responding later learned the disturbance was between a 20-year-old clerk and a customer.
The customer, who called authorities, said "she was thrown to the ground and beaten by the store clerk" in her statement to authorities. However, after speaking with the clerk, authorities learned the customer first threw a bottle at her.
The clerk said the woman did not have her ID with her and was trying to buy cigarettes, nothing the customer became irate when the clerk refused. After being refused cigarettes, the woman allegedly picked up a bottle from the counter and threw it at the clerk. The two began yelling at each other and the customer quickly left the store as the clerk followed her out to grab her license plate number.
Once the clerk had also made it outside, she said the customer "started back towards her as if she wanted to fight." At this point, the clerk said she then hit the customer, "knocking her onto the ground."
"[The clerk] stated she struck her a few more times before she was pulled of by bystanders," the incident report reads.
After listening to witness statements and speaking with both women, the officer determined "both parties mutually escalated the situation."
