A representative for the dealership told News 12 that the customer wanted an oil change, a service not currently being performed as per state guidelines. They said disciplinary action has been taken against the employee and issued this statement:
"The intent was to ensure the health and safety of the customer and dealership employees and in no way reflects our values or beliefs."
The employee is on a two-week unpaid leave and will undergo sensitivity training before returning to work.
Service centers are open in the state for essential repairs only.
