Caltex Singapore has confirmed that the case involving the elderly pump attendant and the BMW driver who only wanted to pay S$10 for his full tank of fuel is now with the police.

In a statement shared with Mothership on Monday afternoon, Caltex Singapore said it was informed that a member of the public had filed a police report over the matter, which involves the driver and one of its elderly pump attendants working at Caltex’s Tampines petrol kiosk.

Based on Shin Min Daily News‘s interview with the driver, it’s possible that he may be the party who initiated the police investigation:
