Tow Company Owner Indicted

Sweet. Excuse me while I laugh myself fucking silly. George King, of Frank’s Towing, got his own ass towed to court this morning for about 20 counts, ranging from failing to register and report business income, and not withholding taxes from employee pay. Hat tip to DCist for pointing this one out, but man, how can you not love it when towing companies get hauled into court?

Especially when they’re particularly good at entrapment. I wonder if Advanced Towing adequately documents the two minors that they pay to sit in parking lots? Or, well, are they paid off the books by the counter girls?

    What, and you weren’t there with the tar and feathers? I think you should take a day off work just to laugh at this guy in person. Better yet, rent a tow truck while he’s in court and give hima taste.

    You know you want to.

    In the realm of “least helpful person ever,” a friend once responded to my question of “Do you know anyone at a tow company?” with “I know someone who wants to sell his tow truck.” It didn’t do me and my breakdown any good at the time but maybe it’s just right for you, Tom. You could be like the Batman of towing – respond to the crime and grime you see around you by taking up the torch yourself and Towing for Truth and Justice!

    If only his court time were known. It would have been grand to greet him with applause as he exited the courthouse.
