Meter Man Freaks Out
A meter man was caught on tape losing his cool when he verbally attacked the husband of a driver who he ticketed. INSIDE EDITION has the story.
It's an amazing confrontation with a meter man that was all caught on cell phone video.
"I don't give a [expletive deleted] about the job! A guy like you should get the [expletive deleted] out of here!" said the meter man.
"I lost my temper! You see what that says? Volunteer! You don't even know what the [expletive deleted] that means! Volunteer! Okay?" he continued.
The 68-year-old meter man even appeared to slap the driver and said, "Take that and shove it up your [expletive deleted]!"
Bill Evans, the driver, said, "You just...I have it on video!"
"I could give a damn less. You Pennsylvania scooper woodchuck!" said the meter man.
The meltdown happened in September 2010 after Pennsylvanian Andi Evans was given a ticket for parking at an expired meter in Delray Beach, Florida. She says she was there just 30 seconds.
"He was obviously waiting for me to get out of the car, and his screaming and yelling at me was totally uncalled for, totally inappropriate and actually quite violent," said Andi Evans.
Several hours later her husband confronted meter man Barry Shore, with his iPhone recording everything.
Bill Evans said, "He reached into my vehicle and took a swipe at me."
The meter man told INSIDE EDITION's Diane McInerney, "Basically I called him a scooper woodchuck. That's someone that digs woodchucks."
"What did you mean calling him that?" asked McInerney.
Shore said, "He told me, when he was out of his car, that he was from Pennsylvania and that Pennsylvnians hate New Yorkers, and I was a New York piece of 'blank.' "
Barry Shore admits he shouldn't have lost his temper, but claims he had been driven over the edge by the man's taunts.
"I lost my cool and I shouldn't have," admitted Shore.
He's resigned as an unpaid volunteer meter man.
