BISMARCK, North Dakota — Put the pump down.
A North Dakota man was busted after cops say they spotted him trying to light a cigarette using the nozzle of a gas pump.
Skyler Beau Whitebull, 29, of Cannon Ball was stumbling around in the Bismarck gas station parking lot when cops ordered him to put the nozzle down. He allegedly refused and resisted when cops attempted to wrestle the pump away from him and then struck a fighting pose.
Officers then forced him to the ground. He allegedly continued fighting with cops as they tried to slap cuffs on him, the Bismarck Tribune reported.
A search of Whitebull’s bag revealed several small, zippered bags with methamphetamine residue, cops said. He was charged with misdemeanor meth possession and resisting arrest.
