See, now you're solid. Just make sure you got those deputies names, and note the time of the conversation and you're golden.

Man I really want ot hear how this one turns out. First I was thinking "damn, he should have paid but at least he realised that he should fight it after the fact", then it was "man he isn't doing himself any favours acting like this", then "hahaha, stupid towing company! I hope they do call the cops and get laughed at!"
One final note, you should make sure you call them to find out what the story is (assuming they do call the cops and get laughed at / already know they will get laughed at so want even bother calling the cops). Then once they say they will not be persuing it file a complaint with the cops / BBB for the fact they were trying to extort money from you with threats of police prosecution!

Internet legal advice worth exactly what you paid for it.

What was their reply to that?

That's something I've learned through my own legal struggles (though not through any derogatory behavior of my own). Write down EVERYTHING.

Based upon all the ones I've met in person. Yes. The only one who wasn't just wanted to bust kids w/ weed so he could smoke it. Even he was pretty corrupt.

Most of the wrecker drivers I know are pretty cool guys.

This is probably a dumb question, but can you even dispute a charge on a debit card? Seems like that wouldn't go far, especially if the guy has an imprint of your card. I say that guy was trying to extort money from you and good call on canceling the card.

Your mileage may vary, I guess. One of my best friends in high school's dad was a reserve officer, shortly after college I dated a 911 dispatcher for a couple years, and after that I dated the secretary for a different department. Plus, on my fire department, we have an active Sheriff's deputy, a retired deputy, and a former reserve officer. You could say I know a *lot* of members of law enforcement. There's always a couple bad eggs, but the guys I know are all decent guys - both on and off duty.
