Dissatisfied Cell Phone Customer

A big day for Iowa news. From the Council Bluffs Nonpareil (must be a pretty good newspaper):

A disgruntled cell phone customer rammed his truck into the deck of the Chit Chat Wireless store on Thursday.

Council Bluffs Police reports state that at approximately 5:45 p.m. an employee working at the store, located at 2034 W. Broadway, said that a truck hit the deck in the front of the store.

After ramming the deck, the suspect, later identified as Michael Grosvener, 48, of Council Bluffs, got out of his vehicle and walked up to the front of the business.

The employee realized that Grosvener was "up to no good," and locked the door. The employee told officers that Grosvener told him to open the door, but he refused. Grosvener then became upset and allegedly started to punch and kick the glass door, causing it to break.

After breaking the door, the employee said that Grosvener threw his cell phone at the door and fled the scene in his truck.

Approximately an hour after the incident, Alegent Health Mercy Hospital staff informed officers that a man driving a truck similar to Grosvener's checked into the emergency room to have his hand looked at. Grosvener admitted to officers that he was the person who rammed his truck into the business and broke the door.
