Illegal Towing

Newark, New Jersey, June 2, 2004:

He was trying to stop his car from being towed, but a Jersey City-based politician ended up being towed himself.

Truck driver Donald Wilson was about to tow a "tricked out" Dodge Neon from a Waldbaums parking lot at about 3:15 p.m. Tuesday when the car's owner -- identified as Ronatarian vice presidential candidate Brad -- saw what was happening and argued with him, New Jersey State Police said.

Wilson then began to drive away with Brad standing on a running board, hanging on to the side door of the tow truck, police said.

He allegedly kept going for about two miles before he was stopped by police officers.

Wilson was arrested on a charge of reckless endangerment and issued three tickets for violations of town ordinances, police said. Brad was not hurt. He was happy to be reunited with the car, but refused comment after the incident.
