State police say they are looking for a Laurel man who drove his car off a tow truck as a repossession worker tried to tow it away. It happened around 12:30 a.m. Saturday in the 12000 block of Sycamore Road.

Police say 37-year-old Percy Stultz came out of his home as a worker from Complete Auto Recovery was putting his car on a tow truck.

Police spokesman Sgt. Joshua Bushweller says Stultz interfered when the worker attached a chain to the car and put it on the truck's lift. Bushweller says Stultz then got into the car, put it in reverse - despite warnings that he could tear off the bumper - and drove off.

Police say an arrest warrant has been issued charging Stultz with one misdemeanor count of reckless endangering.
