A weary Pennsylvania man found himself in a gruesome confrontation with local cops at a gas station after he was caught pasting anti-Joe Biden stickers on pumps to protest rising fuel prices.
“This guy stuck stickers on a gas pump, got yelled at by a clerk for doing it, and then went crazy afterwards,” wrote Aaron Philips, who recorded the March 31 incident and shared it on Facebook.
Thomas Richard Glazewski, 54, of Manor Township, was charged on April 4 with a series of offenses after placing President Biden decals on pumps at a gas station in Turkey Hill, Lancaster Online reports.
His effort is part of a growing national trend as gasoline prices continue to soar. The stickers show the president pointing at the awards with the words “I did this!” in large bold type.
“F-you,” Glazewski is heard shouting while waving his arms at the police. He then ran towards the pump shouting, “I did that! That’s what I did!” repeating the message seen on stickers placed on gas pumps across the country.
Glazewksi then ran across the gas station parking lot and was tackled and handcuffed by an officer. The belligerence continued as three cops tried to push him into the back seat of an East Hempfield patrol car, even kicking two of the officers.
He was charged with resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, harassment and criminal mischief, Lancaster Online reported.
A gallon of regular gasoline currently averages $4.12 nationally, $4.22 in Pennsylvania and $4.24 in New York, according to AAA.
Last month, the Post found the Biden “I did that!” decals on gas pumps in Mott Haven and Harlem. Amazon sells 100 sticker packs online for $8.95.
