DETROIT – An upset customer went on a rampage inside a Marathon gas station last week at the intersection of Davison and McNichols Road in Detroit. 

The woman was inside the gas station about 3 a.m. June 16. The clerk said she entered barefoot and in an upset mood. She is shown smoking a cigar and sitting on what appears to be an ice cream cooler inside the station. Management believes she may have been set off by the clerk telling her to pay for the cigar she was smoking. 

She began pulling items off the shelves. She is shown stepping on some items and kicking them across the floor.

It escalated from there. The woman is on top of a counter at one point in this surveillance video. She knocks over several shelves and pushes around floor items in a random fashion. She eventually broke open cooler doors. 

Detroit police officers arrived, but that did not discourage her from continuing her destruction. Officers finally got cuffs on her and she was arrested. 

The below video shows what happened when police arrived at the gas station.
