A prominent Tesla Community member and Model 3 owner Frunker (@MFrunker / Twitter) parked his car at a Supercharger station in the United States earlier today.
Nothing weird in that but as he returned to his car after a short break he found that the Supercharger station was swarming with a group of bikers.
“I was the only car at the supercharger. I went and got food came back to this,” Frunker stated on Twitter while sharing the following photo of the Supercharger as he returned.
The Twitter profile of this Tesla owner suggests that he originaly belongs to Canada where apparently this situation could be a strange sight. But he was not actually in his native country but traveling in the United States.
Fortunately, the Tesla Model 3 owner drove off the scene safely as the charging was also complete as he returned to his car, he confirmed in a later tweet.
Frunker most probably didn’t engage in any conversation with the ICE bikers at the Supercharger location, so therefore there is no information available about the bikers’ intentions.
Being alone in such a situation with a precious Tesla car is a scary scene to imagine. However, this Tesla owner did not report any damage or vandalism to his vehicle which is a bit heartening.
In the past, we have seen large internal combustion engine pickup trucks blocking Supercharger stations. A phenomenon which is known as ICE-ing. But bikers blocking a Tesla Supercharger has come to our sight for the first time.
Back in 2019, we reported a Ford Mustang got towed and ticketed for blocking a Tesla charger in Walnut Creek, California. But I guess it was a rare incident that a cop took such action for ICE-ing behavior.
Frunker did not disclose the exact location of this Supercharger station.
