(Scroll down for video) Police launched an investigation after a video has emerged, showing a gas station employee in California, using a bat to vandalize a truck because the driver stayed too long at the pump.

The video that was taken with a cellphone shows the female employee of a Valero gas station in Lancaster, counting down before hitting the truck numerous times.

The owner of the truck who identified himself as Ray, said he was shocked by the attack and feared for his safety. Police officers who responded to the scene, arrested the woman on a charge of vandalism.

She was booked into jail, and her bail was set at $20,000.

Ray admitted that he was sitting in his truck making phone calls while he was filling his tank with gas around 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday.

He said that he lost track of time, possibly staying there for about an hour before the employee launched the attack.
