O’Reilly’s customer loses his cool after receiving wrong car part

MOUNTAIN VIEW — The Mountain View Police Department has announced the arrest of a suspect who had caused a disturbance at an Auto Parts store near the Mountain View/Palo Alto border.

A call came in to the 9-1-1 dispatch control center in Mountain View of a suspect who had hit several customers standing  in a line and was yelling at an employee after receiving the wrong car part from the counter.

Mountain View Patrolling Officers responded to O’Reilly Auto Parts in the 2600 block of California Street only to find that the suspect had fled the area.

According to MVPD, “When we arrived, we were told by employees and witnesses that Palo Alto resident David Oakley had come into the store, upset that he had been given the wrong car part.”

They described the suspect as being so angry he seemed out of control and that he began yelling at employees and hit several customers with a carburetor cover.

According to MVPD, “Our officers responded to the scene and began to investigate where Oakley was, learning shortly thereafter that he lived in Palo Alto.”  Officers responded to his home address and had asked him to come outside after trying to calm him down. “He eventually came out, but kicked one of our officers in the process and tried to kick out a window of a patrol car.  He was ultimately arrested for assault with a deadly weapon, hit and run, and resisting arrest, and booked into the Santa Clara County Jail.”

Oakley is currently being held on a 35,000 bail.
