IL Man Charged With Felony For Attacking Tow Truck

Here's the Aurora Beacon News story:

Michael Sauber, 42, of the 200 block of Hidden Creek Lane, North Aurora, was charged with felony criminal damage to property and misdemeanor aggravated assault after he went after a tow truck driver who was hauling his car away from the 200 block of Hidden Creek Lane at 5:25 p.m. Tuesday, the Kane County state's attorney's office said.

The truck driver said he saw the car parked for 10 to 20 minutes so he hooked it up to the tow truck, prosecutors said. Sauber came out and threatened to kill the driver if he towed the car, prosecutors said. Sauber then came out with a shovel and hit the side of the tow truck, causing $1,000 in damage, before the tow truck sped away, prosecutors said.
