Cars towed as shoppers wait in line
HOUSTON (KTRK) -- There were some very unhappy people outside the Best Buy store on Beechnut and the Southwest Freeway as they waited for Black Friday deals.
Customers in line called police when they say wrecker drivers started towing their cars late Thursday night. The misunderstanding apparently started when the tow truck drivers thought the cars belonged to patrons of a nearby nightclub, not people in line.
"Cars were getting towed all of a sudden," said shopper Alesandro Caitlin. "We're like, 'We're waiting in line.' And they were like, 'You all are going to a club across the street.' And we were like, 'No, we're waiting in line.'"
About 12 cars were towed before Houston police stepped in and stopped the towing. The wrecker drivers returned all the cars belonging to people in line.
