Florida man assaults ATM because it gave him money

Florida man, Michael Joseph Oleksik, 23, was arrested Friday after he reportedly punched an ATM because it “was giving him too much money” during an incident in November.

 Oleksik was charged with criminal mischief after Wells Fargo requested Cocoa Police press charges against the man.

Law enforcement told Florida Today that Oleksik was seen on surveillance footage “standing at the ATM, pummeling the electronic teller’s touch screen on Nov. 29.”

Oleksik told police he was in a hurry to get to work and became frustrated the machine when it began giving him more money than he requested. He told police he didn’t know what else to do and took his frustration out on the atm. His attack caused at least $5,000 in damages.

Oleksik then reportedly called Wells Fargo and apologized for the damage done to the teller machine, but said he was “angry the ATM was giving him too much money and he did not know what to do.”
