Being a repo man is not an easy job. Especially when you're tapped to repo an NYPD officer's personal car. Jose Rodriguez has been a repo man for three years. He recently came across a Nissan Maxima wanted by the bank because of three missed payments.
So he hooked up the car, which was parked out in front of a police precinct, and was about to walk into the station house to notify police when a green pickup pulled in front of him. Out popped a fellow NYPD officer who recognized the car and blocked the tow truck in.
The owner of the car showed up and offered to pay for the back payments but Jose said he couldn't because it was already on the truck and at that point, it's the bank's property. That's when police surrounded him, accused him of auto theft, and arrested him for possession of stolen property, a felony.
The felony charge has been dropped but he still hasn't got his tow truck back and is thinking about suing the NYPD.
