Eugene C. Simmons, a toll taker at the Newell Bridge, reported Saturday a man pulled up and asked if he could cross without paying and then pay when he returned. When told he would have to turn around, the man did and then left without incident. A short while later, the man came across the bridge from the West Virginia side, pulled up and began yelling at Simmons, telling him he had better never use that tone of voice with him again, then drove away. A short while after that, the man walked up to the bridge, bought $5 worth of toll tickets and began arguing with Simmons, leaning into the toll booth and threatening to kill him, according to reports. Simmons sprayed the man with pepper spray and he left.
