Prescott driver arrested in tow rage case during snowstorm cleanup


A 30-year-old Prescott resident faces a number of charges after leaping into a vehicle strapped on flatbed tow truck and starting it up, apparently intending to take off.


The incident occurred when tow trucks and graders were on storm cleanup duty on James Street Monday afternoon.


At about 1:30 p.m., police were called by the tow operator that the owner of a towed car was trying to make a break for it.


“Police attended and observed the running vehicle, attached to the tow, with the resident sitting in the driver’s seat,” police noted in a release.


Officers asked the resident to get out of the car and step down from the flatbed, which he did.

Police said further investigation revealed that not only did the individual owe the tow company money, there was an outstanding warrant for him for having failed to attend court on outstanding drug charges.

“The police arrested this individual at location, but prior to their departure the accused paid the outstanding fee to the tow company.”


The resident was held for a bail hearing Jan. 21, 2020.
