Angry truck driver tries to tow cop car
GRESHAM, Ore. - A tow truck driver upset over a recent ticket tried to tow a police cruiser, authorities said.
The 32-year-old man was arrested after he hooked his truck to the marked police vehicle while an officer was responding to a domestic disturbance call, police said.
Authorities said the driver released the cruiser when another officer ordered him to. He later locked the doors of his truck and refused to cooperate, police said.
The driver then called the police station, "apparently unsatisfied with the police response he had generated when he tried to tow a marked police vehicle," according to a police report.
The manager of the tow company was summoned and eventually coaxed the driver into surrendering.
The driver was charged with unlawful use of a vehicle, obstructing governmental administration, interfering with a peace officer and criminal mischief.Do not war for peace. If you must war, war for justice. For without justice there is no peace. -me

Can't fix stupid.And Shepards we shall be,
for thee, My Lord, for thee,
Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
And teeming with souls will it ever be.

Why wasn't he under arrest when he was trying to tow the car in the 1st place? Why give him the opportunity to get in the truck?Are you a 3%er? If you aren't, you should be.

In all my years of law enforcement I met a lot of tow truck drivers. Although they were generally amiable and friendly, I never did meet one that had an IQ in the normal or above normal range! Nice guys but dumber that dirt.Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence.

I don't find this one bit strange at all....I use to park my unmarked, clearly recognizable as an unmarked with a official permit in the window and worry about the traffic agents writing a ticket or towing it..... Its been done and their defense was "I didn't know"

The level of force was elevated through the departmentally-mandated continuum until compliance by the offender was achieved.

Such injuries included... "

Should have knocked some common sense into his head. I hear that moderate doses of the wonder drug PR-24 work well on these types of mental disorders."I have an open door policy on tickets ... if I have to open my door, you are getting a ticket. If I turn on those lights, somebody has to pay the electric bill."
