ok so the dealer ship settles on a price and sell the suv then decide the price is too low? are the surprised the guy would'nt sign a different contract?
and read the article it says after the man refused to sign the new contract they called the police. one of the managers said he stole the vehicle
the guy apparently had signed a contract to buy the vehicle already.

good thing he's suing the shit out of them for being arreested and jailed for a crime he did'nt commit...

This is going to cost the dealership WAY more than the $5600.00 dollars......and I'm sorry, but there is no way to fix what they did to this man!!!!

Pay up dealership.......this is ALL on you and your employees!!!!

This guy has a great case against the dealer AND the city/police for false arrest etc.

Many years-ago a young woman brought a few friends into a new car dealership. The friends has musical instruments they quickly set up and the gal started to sing a few popular songs of the day. Everybody there thought it was some kind of promotion and all enjoyed the entertainment. When they were finished their last 'number'. The gal walked over to one of the shiny, brand-new cars and said "I'll take THIS one".

Sometime later after a law suit, she owned that car. The dealer had recently advertised that "you can buy a car for a song at XYZ"....The gal gave them a song and demanded her car...and she got it.

He does have a case against the police if the cops didn't check registration to see who was the registered owner.

the dealer filed the report , and how do you know that mvd paper work was done, I'm guessing not , but logic dictates the dealer wasn't doing it , a manager said it was stole , details are hazy ... the police arrest , investigate then decide if you are charged , DA decides if he can convict

odds are he settles out of court

Arrest - To take into custody by legal authority. meaning held for investigation

Some years back, before cell phones, I spent a summer in LA. At the time a dealership put coupons in phone books. They didn't put a limit on how many coupons one could redeem. A lady went around to phone booths and took the coupon out of all the books until she had enough to purchase the car.

They had to sell it to her for the coupons.

false arrest situations include an arrest by a police officer of the wrong person or without probable cause to believe a crime has been committed and/or without a warrant.

dealer filed a report .... probable cause

I have grown to hate car salesmen and this only reinforces my thoughts. I hate the idea of even stopping at stealerships for anything.

So does Dennis Ellmer.

"In an interview Tuesday, Ellmer and Cummings said their staff never reported the SUV stolen and never asked for Sawyer to be arrested. They said they called police only for help locating the SUV while they pursued the civil action.

After speaking with police Wednesday, however, Ellmer said he'd learned one of his managers, Brad Anderson, had indeed said the SUV was stolen.

I owe Mr. Sawyer a big apology," said Ellmer, who manages the entire Priority Auto Group - which includes 11 dealerships in Virginia and North Carolina."

Sorry ISN'T GOOD ENOUGH. Dennis Ellmer should be put in jail for EXTORTION.

The customer SIGNED the contract and took delivery of the vehicle. Ellmer went after him AFTER THE FACT. He lied to law enforcement and caused the customer a ton of grief. Then he hid behind the 'skirt' of his fall guy, the manager.

Boycott this dealership and hit them where it REALLY hurts, their wallet.

The police may have a case against the dealership - there had to be a falsified stolen vehicle claim by the dealership, even though they denied it. Somehow - the cops will get their money back.

MIL my man , the police are not going to lose any money , after their investigation the person was never charged, the police have to investigate all reports , arrest is legal form of detention , this isn't don't leave town deal , stay around home affair

True - but nowadays, with the city council paying closer attention to costs - I would bet you the dealership has a day in court - even if the city garnishes some of that civil case money (court costs).

I agree the dealership will pay ... civil court is easier to win
