Elvis in Brawl at Gas Station….

October 18, 1956…..

Singer Elvis Presley gets into a fight with a gas station owner and an employee. Elvis had driven into the gas station to have his car checked. As he was getting ready to leave, a group of young girls stopped him to ask for autographs. While signing the autographs, the gas station owner asked Elvis to move his car so others could get gas. When Elvis didn’t move his car, a scuffle ensued with the gas station owner and Elvis exchanging blows. A gas station employee then joined in to help the owner. They were all three arrested. The gas station owner was fined $25 and the employee was fined $15 for “taking the law into their own hands.” The charges against Elvis were dismissed.
