PINSON, AL (AP) - A Jefferson County man is charged with attempted murder after authorities say he drove his truck through the window of a service station.

Jefferson County Chief Deputy Randy Christian says 49-year-old Roger Mayes pulled into a BP station on Alabama 75 in Pinson Sunday morning and got into a dispute with the clerk because the pump was turned off.

Christian says the station has a pay-first policy. Christian says Mayes went back to his Ford Explorer and drove through the plate glass window and into the counter.

Christian says a deputy eventually subdued Mayes, whose pants came down during the event, with a stun gun.

Mayes was treated by paramedics and then jailed on charges of attempted murder and resisting arrest. His bond is set at $63,000.

The gas station's owner says it will cost $100,000 to repair his business.
