A man accused of using a squeegee to hit another man during a fight over who was first in line at a gas pump was due in court on charges. The man, Hector Chavez, 21, was to be arraigned Friday in Faulkner County Circuit Court on a second-degree battery charge.

A Conway police report said the victim told officers that he was waiting in line at a gas pump when Chavez cut in front of him. The victim _ who was not identified _ said he confronted Chavez with the squeegee and swung at him before Chavez took the squeegee and began beating him with it.

A phone listing could not be found for Chavez and it wasn't clear whether he had an attorney.
