Houma man arrested after gas pump damaged

Updated:

HOUMA, La. (AP) - A Houma man has been arrested after allegedly damaging an uncooperative gas pump.

The Courier reports (http://bit.ly/SCecwf ) Terrebonne Parish sheriff's deputies arrested Sean Charles Oshea, 27, of Houma on charges of criminal damage to property.

Deputies say Oshea told them he pulled up to the gas station at the Sam's Club store and became irate after the pump would not accept his debit card.

Deputies said Oshea started beating on the pump with the hose nozzle, causing damage estimated at several thousand dollars.

It was unclear whether he has an attorney.
