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.
