Your tank breather will still work even if the tank is full to the brim.
Personally, I never fill the tank right to the deck fitting and it's best not to let it spout up like that as it pressure-spikes the tank.
Even still, I cannot explain what's happened to the pump. perhaps take off the tank inspection hatch to see if that helps.
