This is the moment a petrol station attendant picks up a fire extinguisher and sprays a drunk who lights up a cigarette next to the fuel pumps and refuses to put it out.

The shirtless customer surnamed Li, 66, was reportedly also drunk at the time, leaving the station attendant no choice but to take matters into her own hands.

CCTV footage from the city of Tianmen in China’s central Hubei Province shows Li parked next to the petrol pumps earlier this month.

According to reports, he arrived drunk and tried to purchase petrol for his pedicab, but his request was refused when he was unable to produce his identity card – a regulation required in some Chinese cities.

The stubborn suspect refused to leave and allegedly lit up a cigarette on the spot.

Following what were reportedly multiple warnings, the footage shows the station attendant picking up a fire extinguisher and emptying it right in Li’s face, covering him in a cloud of mist.

The amusing video shows Li driving his pedicab away from the attendant, who follows him and sprays him again as the video ends.

Reports said Li was later detained for endangering public safety.

It is unclear what punishment he was given by the police.
