I have seen some very bad behavior from tow truck drivers over the years. They can be quite confrontational and arrogant-not to mention downright rude. I saw one this weekend wearing a jacket with POLICE printed on the back.

well sounds like some yuppy type punks wanted to leave and the tow truck was geting in position to tow a car and they just demanded not to wait a few moments to allow driver to do there job. If thats the case who cares about prissy people thinking there stuff is more important than anyone else's life or job. Also sounds like the yuppy punk made his yuppy comments and had his teeth handed to him so no loss who cares. Aka from the statement of victims which is way too detailed and leading pointing to how much of a poor victim they are
sounds like there nerds punk butt got what he deserved

I would like to see the city ban Collier's from operations withing the city limit...they are thugs who behave abrasively towards the residents and guests of the city..."predatory towing" needs to become an issue...on the flip side, C'ville Wrecker has always been a positive experience for me and when AAA dropped them in lieu of the now defunct Lethal Towing, I dropped AAA.

It is a dangerous thing to get out of your vehicle with a crowbar in your hands,walking toward someone. You never know who has a gun these days.

Sounds like some punk kids got embarrassed bc they were running their mouth and got dealt with. You're not allowed to park at Red Roof unless your a guest so they were already getting off light to begin with, should have kept their mouth shut, waited 2 minutes, and then gone on their way. Instead, they acted tough and got snuffed through a car window for their troubles. They're lucky they were in the car and not out of it or someone would be eating through a straw today. Great witness report by the three "victims" too, way to sober up, get your stories straight, and then file a report the next day. Grow up, get a job, keep your mouth shut, or get dealt with, simple as that. Too bad NBC29 and the Daily Progress will only report the charges and arrest, and won't print a thing when it is thrown out of court. American (especially CVille) media at its finest.

I know these people and they are not yuppies, but what would that matter? Who hasn't beeped their horn at someone who was about to back into them? Why on earth would you get out of your vehicle with a weapon, and yes in this case the crow bar was intended as a weapon. Seriously, you cannot pull a weapon, and reach through a window and strike someone and think that something will not happen to you (ie, criminally charged or civil lawsuit filed).

Tow truck driver, fire marshall, whats the difference? Saw a fire marshall get out of his squads pickup and walk back to a driver who had honked his horn at him. This behavior from a senior member of Cvilles fire dept. No telling where these guys get their tempers from but they need to be held accountable.

As long as the city (government) uses these licensed car thieves to compensate for too few parking spaces and an excuse to fine motorists, people will be unhappy.

Throw out the politicians and bureaucrats, replace them with people who have brains, then solve the problems.

One is a public official, the other is not. If everything is equal, they both should face legal recource; however, the fire marshall should face suspension, or termination. The tow truck driver's job should be up to their employer. And of course, this is the USA, so if the driver is found guilty, the company might be financially liable for knowningly employing a violent individual.

If only it were that easy, But the politicians and others do have brains but unfortunately guided by more baser instincts.
