There's no crime of "attempted drive off" as far as I'm aware. You either did or didn't. (if you haven't left the premises, no crime has technically been committed)...And fwiw, drive offs are low priority calls akin to a dine and dash, they don't issue APB's..at best the officer responsible for that area will do what's called an "area check"..but it's not an assigned call unless the victim, in this case the service station, requests for contact. The incident "report" is normally just taken over the phone. I know this because I regularly listen to police channels in my shop...
