According to the AP Wire, it started when the tow truck driver pulled into the apartment complex where the woman's car was illegally parked. His truck was quickly swarmed by an angry mob. The driver bargained with the woman, offering to release her vehicle for $150, but according to police, the woman threatened to set the driver's truck on fire if he did not release her car.
After locking himself in the cab and calling 911, the driver noticed his truck was ablaze but managed to kill the flames with an extinguisher. The woman faces arson and criminal mischief charges, and her bond was set at $225,000.--Colin Mathews
