A regular customer at an Oakland County gas station was arrested last week after crashing his F-150 pickup truck into the store and fleeing the scene with his plate number. The 24 year old, named William Edmonds, was arrested for the wild crash while trying to turn 180 around the gas pumps. According to the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office, “A regular had come into the store, bought some beer, then opened one while getting into his truck. He then did a 180, hit a gas pump island, and then drove directly into the store and stopping in the middle of it.”
After the crash, he got out of the truck, removed the rear license plate, took some papers out, and ran away. The whole incident was captured on the stores surveillance camera. When police tracked Edmonds down, he said he wanted to speed around the pumps because his new tyres spin easily. As he was speeding around the bumps, he hit a curb and lost control before crashing through the store. He was charged with reckless driving and failing to report and accident. He was arraigned and issued a $5,000 personal bond. Part of the condition of the bond is not to visit the gas station again. He must also submit alcohol and drugs tests twice a week.
