This is ridiculous and at the same time dangerous!
Which driver in his right senses would act in this crazy manner, all in a bid to free his pickup from a tow truck?
Well, Naijauto.com has found out who would do such.
A Florida Ford F-250 owner did that and landed himself into more problems. Because, not only did he damage the quarter panel of his Ford F-150 pickup, he also got arrested. Much expenses coming his way for that single act.
The unusual scene was caught in Florida
The video showing the tug of war between the Ford owner and the tow truck driver was posted on Instagram under the username 'repo_king07'.
Here's what the Instagram poster wrote,
Shortly after this vehicle had been taken away from the registered owner, that person chased our employee a couple of miles and then hopped in his pick up truck to supposedly grab some personal belongings.
The rest is what you see on video. Due to a chain being attached to the truck he was not able to drive off. The police showed up and arrested the guy.

For sure, a repossession agent owns the Instagram account.
In case you're wondering who a repossession agent is, here's a definition to your rescue.
A repossession agent, also called a repo man, is someone who is hired by financial institutions like banks, to take back the property or possession of debtors. He simply recovers the car, bus or truck of individuals who are yet to pay back the loan they took from financial institutions to buy the vehicle.
So, our Ford driver is a debtor. And he would do anything to take his pickup back even if it means tearing it apart.
The towing truck driver is from a specialized towing service based on the outskirt of Miami.
As reported, the tow truck driver had taken possession of the Ford pickup. And when the owner got to know about the repossession, he went after the tow truck and caught up with it. The Ford F-250 owner stopped the tow truck driver and persuaded him to allow him to take his personal stuff out of the pickup. That was the beginning of the battle of who will possess the Ford. The only thing that stopped the Ford owner from driving away with his pickup was the safety chain which held the Ford to the tow truck wheel lift.
