Driver Gets Kicked Cutting Line For Gas In Port Chester

PORT CHESTER, N.Y. - A 30-year-old man was kicked by another driver when the man tried to cut the line for gas at a Port Chester station Monday morning, police said.

Around 8:45 a.m., the 30-year-old man from Regal Park said he went to the BP Gas Station on Boston Post Road to get gas, according to Lt. Jim Ladeairous, spokesman for the Port Chester Police Department. The vehicle he was driving was almost out of gas and he told police he was cutting the line to get $20 worth of gas in order to wait in line and fill up, police said.

The Regal Park man told police when he asked the gas station attendant for $20 of gas, another driver approached his vehicle, opened the door and kicked him. The driver admitted to kicking the man, saying he had been waiting for gas for quite awhile and got upset when the man cut the line, police said.
