Tow Truck Driver Arrested For Trying To Repossess Cop’s Car

The tow truck operator would be arrested and put in jail for the day. The arresting party claimed that he in possession of the stolen property when, in fact, he had an order to repossess the vehicle. Since the time of the issue, the charges have been dropped to misdemeanors including failure to display a front license plate and towing without a valid New York City towing license. Rodriguez and the company are arguing that the latter isn’t necessary. They say that a license is only needed for commissioned tows. Repossessions are private, instead, and don’t require a license.

Rodriguez and his attorney met with NYPD internal affairs but will not speak on camera. The NYPD reportedly declined multiple requests from CBS for an interview.
