The show consisted of a camera crew following around this repossession company in North Carolina, and needless to say, some of their repossessions were a bit sensationalized… that, or some people in NC are just bat shit crazy.
Hell, I remember watching the show back in the day and a dude came out of his trailer with a flame thrower when he realized his truck was being repossessed.
It was fake, but it was some HIGH quality television.
However, a recent story has surfaced that sounds like something straight out of Lizard Lick Towing… and is definitely NOT fake.
According to The Daily Mail, a UK man living in Barnard Castle, County Durham, was so fed up with his neighbors taunting him, he decided to take matters into his own hands… with a tractor.
In the video, you see a shirtless man kicking the tractor as his car is being removed from blocking a gate. As the car was hauled away, glass and debris was scattered all throughout the road.
According to source the farmer asked them to move the car but they refused:
“The lads had parked their car onto his drive. He asked them to move but they didn’t seem to want to obey.
He had no choice but to take matters into his own hands and remove the ruffians from his property himself.”
Wild stuff man, wild stuff.
Fellow Dairy farmer Mark Nicholson added:
“A lot more to this story, he’s a friend of a colleague, he’s been driven mad by these lot, starting fires, pushing walls over just to name a few things, not saying it’s right but they pushed him to the end of his tether.”
And the best part, after flipping is car over, and dragging down the street away from his drive, he smacked the guy in the back as the farmer is trying to turn around. I mean, the guy is trying to fight him the whole time, kicking the tires on the tractor and everything, and BOOM, flattened by the forks on the front of the tractor.
Thankfully he’s ok (seems like it could’ve hurt a lot more), but I’m not gonna lie, I laughed pretty hard at that.
I will say though, it’s refreshing to see pandemonium like this occur somewhere besides Florida…
