Bryan, TX – November 1, 2013 – According to Bryan police, a Repo Man driver with MARS Recovery service was repossessing a black Chevy truck on the 300 block of Ehlinger Drive when he was forced to defend himself after the borrower confronted him and physically assaulted him with his hands and a long wooden handle and reportedly rammed the truck several times.
