Angry Tow Truck Driver Attempts to Tow Cop Car

Illustration for article titled Angry Tow Truck Driver Attempts to Tow Cop Car

Upset over getting ticketed, a tow truck driver in Gresham, Oregon decided to take his revenge out on the first police cruiser he could find. Turns out there was an unmarked police car responding to a domestic disturbance call that was a fairly easy target. The angry driver was able to get the interceptor hooked up to his rig when a police officer noticed what was going on. After a few tense moments, the driver released the officer's car, but then he locked himself in the cab of his truck.

It wasn't until the manager of the tow company arrived that the man finally surrendered. The driver was charged with unlawful use of a vehicle, obstructing governmental administration, interfering with a peace officer and criminal mischief. Hope it was worth it guy. [AP]

Chattanooga, aside from having gone from gasping through the nastiest air quality in TN to some of the best, is also home to these two claims to fame:

It is the birthplace of the tow truck.

It is also the home to the World Tow Truck Museum.

No, I haven't seen it yet. Can't get past the aquarium.
