Hilarious footage has emerged out of the city of Brandon in Manitoba, Canada showing an angry man repeatedly hitting and smashing a gas pump.
Brandon police released the surveillance video that was filmed on April 25 at a gas station on Highland Avenue.
In the video, an older gentleman can be seen hitting the gas pump with his fist on multiple occasions as he tries to pump fuel. He grows increasingly irritated and even starts kicking the gas pump before he pulls out the nozzle and hits the fuel pump with it. Before long, he throws the nozzle and the hose up into the air and drives off.
Police told Global News that the man was upset after being asked to pay before pumping.
“He wasn’t pleased about being asked to pre-pay for his fuel and unfortunately decided to take it out on the gas pump,” said Brandon Police spokesperson Const. Myran Hamm last Friday. “There’s a complaint of mischief because there was some damage done to the pump.”
Authorities are asking anyone who recognizes the man to call them or Crime Stoppers.
While it can be frustrating to pay before fueling up, it’s bizarre to see someone get so upset with it. For the sake of other drivers, we hope the man was able to cool down when he got back behind the wheel because you don’t want someone to be driving around as angry as this.
Well, this guy looks like a real gas …. If you happen to know this hoser, feel free to pump some premium information our way. We’d love to throw him in the tank!! pic.twitter.com/TrrRMFj2i5
