Wrong Place at the Wrong Time, Repo Man Takes Fire

us_rcvry_towtrckPoarch, AL – May 11, 2013 – A repo Man from US Towing and Recovery came under fire from a borrower who just happened to be having prowler issues.

US Towing and Recovery of Jay, AL was attempting a repossession on Still Farm Road, north of Poarch, Ala. As the repossession was in process, the repossessor claims a woman fired a shot from a nearby home.

The woman claims that she was on edge after someone had “beat at” her door on Wednesday night. On Friday night, she said she was feeding her chickens when someone was walking down a tree line on her property. She sent her dog after the possible prowler while she ran inside her home and called the police before firing her pistol in the air.

She said she did not fire at the Repo Man, but rather at an unknown prowler.

There were no injuries and nothing hit by the gunfire. The Poarch Creek Police Department and the Escambia County (Ala.) Sheriff’s Office responded to the incident and no charges were filed.

The US Towing and Recovery driver was able to successfully complete the repossession.

Both parties agreed it might just have been a case of being at the wrong place at the wrong time.
