Charlotte tow truck driver admits to operating company without a driver’s license


Recommended Posts

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - A Charlotte tow truck driver is operating his business even though he told WBTV he does not have a valid driver license or a commercial driver license.


WBTV started investigating David Satterfield and his company Automobile Recovery and Parking Enforcement after a tip to the WBTV Investigates line.


The story starts in Franklin County Georgia. That’s where Frank Poole called us from after his father’s 1999 Ford Super Duty truck was stolen while he was having lunch.


"And drove it to Charlotte, North Carolina and abandoned it," Poole said.


Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police called and said the truck was located, reported and towed by a company called Automobile Recovery and Parking Enforcement and owner David Satterfield. If Poole wanted the truck back he would have to call him.


"I called up there and he told us the tow fee was $1,500 and that it would be $75 every additional day it was left which sounded just outrageous to me," Poole said.


In 2014 the North Carolina Supreme Court ruled that local government agencies couldn't cap how much towing companies charge for services.
