VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) — All did not go smoothly during Free Slurpee day at a Vancouver, Wash., 7-Eleven store.
About 30 people were inside one of the convenience stores when a man threw the icy beverage into an employee’s face Thursday afternoon, Vancouver police spokeswoman Kim Kapp told The Columbian.
Other customers held the man until police arrived, Kapp said.
Officers gave the customer a warning and told him to leave. Police say the man wanted to go back inside and apologize but police told him to move along.
The Columbian story doesn’t say what started the Slurpee tossing.
Each year on July 11, 7-Eleven offers free small Slurpee drinks to customers.
