Ford F-150 Driver Puts Up A Fight To Prevent His Truck From Being Towed Away

Meet the real “Real People, Not Actors”. People who don’t take kindly to having their vehicles towed and are apparently willing to take matters into their own hands.

The incident took place in Homestead, Florida, where the owner of the white truck allegedly chased down after the tow truck, asking if he could just hop in to grab some personal belongings. As you can see, he wasn’t entirely truthful and, instead, attempted to drive off.

Since a chain was also attached to the F-150, the truck was unable to break free, although it wasn’t for a lack of trying. In the end, the tow truck stood firm, despite getting yanked around pretty badly throughout the struggle.

According to the video’s description, the authorities were involved and the driver of the white pickup truck was arrested for his actions, which, truth be told, were very ill-advised.

Once the tow hook grabs your vehicle, it’s officially in possession of the tow company, so attempting to drive off is breaking the law – and, as we can see here, even endanger others, like the driver of the tow truck. By the way, despite the toughness of Ford’s truck, there was no way it would break its chains. As for its owner, it’s no surprise that he was taken into custody.

    That’s not an F150. Its either a 250 or 350.

    • Harlan McCartney

      Yeah and it is a repost on this site, still listed it as an F-150 again.

    • Pissed Off Papa

      Just like alot of people they have a JOB and its their job to do what they are told by their bosses…
      Are you one of those who still lives with mommy and daddy letting them pay your bills?

      • Shane

        Still a sleazy job. Sure you have the ones that are useful and clean up wrecks on the highway or go pick up someone’s car from their house but for the most part they’re all scum. And FYI I live 1,000 miles away from my parents and don’t need their helpe or anyone else’s for that matter.

        • S CAT

          Full disclosure: I live fairly close to his parents.

  • Bash

    I swear the tow truck drivers can be really unbelievable sometimes, so this is the best thing I saw today.

  • kachuks

    How much is a tow fee versus the thousands in damage to his truck, plus the tow vehicle?

    • Ken Lyns

      It’s a repo. F250 driver has no intention of paying.

      • Oh, I bet he’s paying now. Thousands in fines, layers and possible jail time. A real genius here.

  • Bo Hanan

    At what point during the event do you realize you really don’t want what’s left of your (damaged) truck- that you will still have to pay for? Latino brothas and their trucks….


  • Ed

    Dude….ya gotta make your payments!

  • Mr. EP9

    Ah, I remember this video. That was hilarious.

  • Six_Tymes

    “very ill-advised.” who “advised” him to be an A hole?

    • S CAT

      Wait, what… Who’s being the a hole again?

  • GobbleUp

    Hope the ford driver was jailed for a year and loss of license for 10.

  • karmat

    I get it.

    • Bo Hanan

      LOL. I know, me too.

  • Jay

    All that damage just costed more than their note payment most likely. not worth it.
    p.s. Whats up with you guys naming all F-250’s F-150’s?

  • Dude

    I don’t cast my hate on the drivers normally, but tow *companies* are very often shady and scummy.

  • salamOOn

    i am always amazed about what these people are thinking….
    like they are expecting if they break loose its done? like nobody would contact them about their violation?

  • Knotmyrealname


    • Raul

      obviously white

      • Mind Synthetic

        did you just amuse he is white by the color of his skin lol

        • Raul

          i can tell by the way he talks

      • Pissed Off Papa

        The dumbass stealing the truck is mexican.
        Hence his name Yohanys Lopez

      • S CAT

        Definitely a white mexican!

        • Raul

          There’s no such thing as white mexican. He’s a caucasian.

          • S CAT

            There are tons of white mexicans.

          • Raul

            Nah those are definitely Caucasians.

        • datCubanguy

          there are a couple of millions of white,blue and green eyed Mexicans.

    • Mike Gonzalez

      nope… accent is cuban

  • Art Bell Not really

    Laws need to changed to that tow companies are held responsible for illegal tows in amounts that threaten the survival of the company.

    Just saying My Bad and returning a vehicle doesn’t cut it.

  • Emoto

    Florida wins again! LOL…

  • Shane

    Yeah and drug dealers have a job to do too, doesn’t mean it’s not a scumbag job.

    • S CAT

      Oh burn!!! Nice work Shane.

  • Paul

    This is why most Repo’s are done in the still of night where they don’t get confronted. The way the driver horsed around on that rear hoist and his front end drive system while in 4wd that truck is probably not worth trying to reclaim

    • Ken Lyns

      Nah. The bedside will be repaired the cheapest way possible and the truck will be sent to auction. Any driveline damage will be the next buyer’s problem. No good guys here. Truck’s financing terms may have been predatory to begin with.

  • Dennis James

    I thought these things only happen in Russia.

  • MJack


  • Maximilian Norlande Rabbitt

    I know he should have done the right thing, but I can’t be the only one who was secretly rooting for the guy in the truck

  • U8INIT

    Whew!! Chile the ghetto!!!

  • Cameron

    And now it needs a new bed too. Have fun paying for all those repairs you moron.
