A man in the American state of Alabama was charged with attempted murder after authorities said he drove his truck through the window of a service station.

Jefferson County chief deputy Randy Christian said a 49-year-old man pulled into a BP station on Alabama 75 in Pinson on Sunday morning and got into a dispute with the clerk because the pump was turned off. Christian said the station has a pay-first policy.

Christian said the suspect went back to his Ford Explorer and drove through the plate glass window and into the counter and that a deputy eventually subdued the suspect with a stun gun. His bond is set at $63,000 (D231,430).
