I’ll show them!

tow-truck.jpgIn Portland, Oregon, thirty-two-year-old Steven Syverson was pissed off over a recent ticket he received. So when he happened to drive by an unmanned police cruiser, which was responding to a domestic disturbance call, he did what any level-headed man might do — he hooked the cruiser up to his tow truck:

The police press release said the arrest unfolded this way:
A fellow officer noticed Syverson and ordered him to release the cruiser. After some hesitation, he did.
When the other officer returned to his cruiser, Syverson got back in his tow truck, locked the doors and refused to cooperate.
Then Syverson called the police station, “apparently unsatisfied with the police response he had generated when he tried to tow a marked police vehicle.”
The manager of the tow company was summoned and finally coaxed Syverson into surrendering.
Syverson was charged with unlawful use of a vehicle, obstructing governmental administration, interfering with a peace officer and criminal mischief.
