Police: Man Attacks Employee Over Car Repair Bill
Aaron D. Henderson, of West Allis, headbutts Waukesha Tires Plus employee during dispute about $600 car repair bill.
A 24-year-old West Allis man is facing charges alleging he attacked an employee at a Waukesha tire store when he learned how much repairs to his car would cost.
Aaron D. Henderson was charged in Waukesha County Circuit Court on Wednesday with one count of battery, one count of criminal damage to property and one count of disorderly conduct. If convicted, he faces up to 21 months in prison and $21,000 in fines.
According to the criminal complaint:
On June 23, Henderson was at Tires Plus and was told by an employee he needed repairs for his vehicle. He first applied for a store credit card, but was declined. However, Henderson still told the employee to proceed with the work.
When the work was done, the employee told Henderson the work cost more than $600, which made him irate, saying he never authorized the work and had no way to pay for it. He also said the employee never told him his application for the credit card was declined.
Henderson head butted the employee, then punched a wall, causing tires to fall down onto the floor. The victim then called police and Henderson began to apologize for the outburst.
Henderson admitted all his actions during the incident when questioned by police officers. The employee told officers he planned to let Henderson pay some of the bill now and the rest later, but he never allowed him the opportunity to speak during the outburst.
Henderson is currently out of custody and a warrant has been issued for his arrest.
