LAUREL, Del. – State police say they are looking for a Laurel man who drove his car off a tow truck around 12:30 a.m. Saturday as a repossession worker tried to tow it away. Police said a 37-year-old man came out of his home as a worker from Complete Auto Recovery was putting his car on a tow truck.

Police spokesman Sgt. Joshua Bushweller said the man interfered when the worker attached a chain to the car and put it on the truck's lift.

Bushweller said the man then got into the car, put it in reverse — despite warnings that he could tear off the bumper — and drove off.

Police said an arrest warrant has been issued charging the man with one misdemeanor count of reckless endangering.
