Tri-Cities man pulls knife when credit card refused

July 23, 2013 

— A West Richland man was arrested on suspicion of second degree assault after he pulled a knife on an employee of Autobahn Car Wash in Kennewick, according to Kennewick police reports.

Joseph Mceneaney, 23, brought his black 1993 Camaro to the car wash at 3928 W. Clearwater Ave. about 3:30 p.m. Sunday to have it washed.

He produced a credit card with a woman’s name on it to pay, but a female car wash employee told him he needed to use a credit card with his name on it.

He said the card belonged to his mother, but the employee still refused to accept the card.

Mceneaney pulled out a knife and told her he was serious, and the employee accepted the card, according to police reports.

He got his car washed and left, but police arrested him Monday afternoon.

The card did belong to his mother, according to police.
