MANITOWOC — Manitowoc police arrested a man for his 23rd gas drive-off incident, according to our partners WLUK in Green Bay.

WLUK reported Karl Kinyon, 37, was arrested after an incident Monday, Feb. 18 at a convenience store on S. 10th Street, according to the police report.

Kinyon told police he has a “layaway system” with Kwik Trip, and was in a hurry on Monday, but he said he always pays for the gas “eventually,” the report said.

Kwik Trip officials estimated Kinyon owes for 14 of the 23 drive-offs, for a total of $803.90.
