Several people cheered as one person drove a vehicle off of a wrecker as it was being repossessed early Tuesday, according to a police report.
Officers responded to a disturbance call in the 200 block of South Bonnie Brae Street around 1:37 a.m. A caller who said he was a repossession driver told police he believed the owner of the sedan he was repossessing had driven the car off the wrecker vehicle.
The report says the caller was starting to drive away with the sedan in tow when someone jumped over an apartment balcony right behind the truck, hopped into the car and drove it off the lift.
The caller reported that seven to eight people walked out of that same apartment unit cheering as the motorist drove off the lift, causing damage to the loading mechanism. The motorist then left the apartment complex parking lot, according to the report.
The damage to the loading mechanism was estimated to be about $426. Police are still investigating. It’s not confirmed if the person who drove the car off the lift is the owner.
