[February 03, 2010]  PINSON, Ala. (AP) -- A man 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 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.

Christian said a deputy eventually subdued the suspect with a stun gun.

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