Son, Dad Arrested After Cutting Line at Wal-Mart

A 26-year-old man and his father were arrested by an off-duty Muncie police officer after the man cut in line at a Wal-Mart store.

Police reports say 26-year-old Edward R. Pluhar Jr. of Frankfort cut to the front of the line at the Wal-Mart service desk Sunday.

What he didn't know was that Officer Chris Kirby was waiting in the line.

Kirby says Pluhar refused when asked to wait his turn. Pluhar's father, 61-year-old Edward R. Pluhar Sr., then asked Kirby if he wanted to step outside.

That's when Kirby told the men he was a police officer.

Kirby followed the men into the parking lot where they scuffled. Other officers arrived and arrested both Kirbys.

They were released after posting bond. The Associated Press left a message at a listing for Pluhar in Frankfort seeking comment.
