A Car Repossession Gone Wrong

Nobody likes to have their vehicle repossessed so people are always on the lookout for repo men hitching up rides in their hood, which is a good thing considering there are also many crooks out there posing as repo men.  

And as you can see in this video footage shot by Brittany McDonald and James Harris there are also many crazy people out there who will go straight Road Warrior on you if you try to repossess their car:

When the tow truck driver tried to get away, the owner of the car jumped onto the truck to try and stop him.

"I just looked in the rear view mirror and saw black smoke and a guy rolling on the street. ... I didn't know what was going on," McDonald said.

Harris said it looked like the man was trying to unhook the car from the tow truck, but the driver kept going.

"He flipped off and chased him two or three blocks and somebody must have given him a ride and caught up to him," Harris said.

The owner of the car was holding a crowbar and smashed the rear window of the tow truck while the truck driver tried to escape, according to investigators. Sparks were flying from the vehicle as it was dragged for more than 10 minutes through the streets of Compton.

"A blessing nobody did get hit.. cars had to swerve and the car was spinning and people ran into trash cans parked on the side of the road. It was crazy. We were following, the tires actually came off ... we ran over tires as we recorded the video ... it was a sight to see," McDonald said.  (NSFW Language)
