KANAWHA COUNTY, WV — Paul Yeager is suing Handi Man Car Wash Inc. and Tammy Ray, Richard J. Lindroth and Paul Zakaib for damages to his vehicle after receiving a $13 wash on Jan. 3, 2009, The Record reported.

The Feb. 10 story said Yeager saw that his car was still dirty after it left the bay. He told employees there and they agreed and he asked them to stop drying his car as they were just rubbing in the dirt and making scratches on the surface.

It was then that Ray told the workers to keep drying the vehicle regardless. Ray then told Yeager, according to the lawsuit, that "if he wanted his car clean, he should have paid for a detail job, not a wash job."

Yeager is seeking “compensatory and punitive damages,” the story said.
