Police investigate Slurpee day incident

By , Columbian Social Services, Demographics, Faith

Free Slurpee day resulted in a scuffle at a Vancouver 7-Eleven Thursday afternoon.

About 30 people were inside the convenience store at Northeast 51st Street and 112th Avenue when a customer threw the icy beverage into an employee’s face. Other customers detained him until police arrived, said Kim Kapp, spokeswoman for the Vancouver Police Department.

Responding officers told the customer to leave the store and gave him a warning. The man wanted to go back inside and apologize, but police told him to just move on. No one was injured during the frozen drink fight.

Every year on July 11, or 7/11, the national chain offers free small Slurpees to customers.
