Tow driver reportedly walking away when shot

FT. LAUDERDALE l A dispatch from an apartment complex to remove three violation vehicles lead to a tow truck driver being shot and killed Tuesday afternoon near Ft. Lauderdale. The attack and the suspect’s subsequent gunfight with police was captured on a dash-mounted camera in the tow truck.

David Herr of Hollywood, Flor. worked for All County Towing in Ft. Lauderdale. Around 3 p.m. Tuesday he was hooking up a 2001 gold Jaguar at the direct request of the apartment’s management. Two other drivers from All County were also on site handling different vehicles.

The vehicle David Herr was towing is owned by a 31-year-old Florida man named Triston Johnson, who according to the police report, arrived to discover his vehicle about to be removed from the premises.

An argument ensued, at which point police say Johnson pulled a gun and fired on Herr as the tow driver was walking away, striking him in the back of the head. He then reportedly fired additional shots at the fallen man as he lay bleeding.

Calls immediately went out from witnesses to 911 dispatch, and arriving officer Deputy Mike Ryan of the Broward County Sheriff’s Department was also fired upon.

In his report, Deputy Ryan said he first discovered Johnson searching the immediate area for something when he arrived. Upon spotting police, Johnson fired several shots from a semi-automatic pistol.

The suspect was shot at least twice after additional police arrived and was taken to an area hospital. He was quickly charged with premeditated murder and attempted murder for firing at Deputy Ryan.

When word broke in the local towing community about the shooting, driver Kevin Godfrey immediately headed to the scene. A longtime friend of Herr’s, he spoke with The Sun Sentinel.

“Somebody didn’t want to have their car towed,” Godfrey said. “Now [Johnson]’s going to go to prison for the rest of his life and Dave is dead over a car. A car!”

The video that was recorded by the dash cam in Herr’s
truck will not be released to the public, but will likely be used as evidence in the upcoming trial. www.24-hours-towing.com

Some owners claim they were targeted ‘by association.’

ST LOUIS – An annual gathering of motorcycle enthusiasts in St. Louis ensnared local police this week, resulting ultimately in two deaths, dozens of arrests and nearly ninety bikes towed. Several owners are now crying foul, claiming their property was wrongfully seized by overzealous police.

“Ride Of The Century” specifically attracts sports bikes, with their tight and versatile design and power-charged engines allowing for some amazing stunts. Those stunts have lead to trouble in the past for police, though mostly injuries and complaints.

By Saturday, more than 25 people had already been detained by police, often on misdemeanor charges related to dangerous driving. Some had performed stunts.

Many drivers who were ultimately towed later claim they drew the attention of police simply for being near places where stunts were performed. They claim police began waiting for an opportunity to seize their bikes, identifying them as troublemakers by association.

“Let me see proof that any single one of us did anything'” asks Joey Pellegrin, a rider from Minnesota whose bike was impounded. “Just because there’s a group with five people in the front doing wheelies and what not, doesn’t make the fifty people behind them. That doesn’t mean they’re doing that.”

By Saturday afternoon at least thirty bikes had been hauled, some reportedly with the drivers only arrested under basic traffic violations.

“I’ve never heard of someone getting jail time for running a red light,” biker Kevin Brannon told Fox-2 News, referring to his night in lock-up.

Police say the measures were called for in each case because of the behavior of those individual drivers They point to a deadly weekend as proof of how dangerous the situation could be.

Early on Saturday morning, a young man driving a sports bike was killed when he reportedly ran a red light, being struck by another vehicle. Justin Rohe of St. Charles, Missouri, was 25.

Later that afternoon, a biker clipped the side of a police vehicle before veering off the road and striking a light pole. The driver, 32-year-old Michael Evans of St. Louis died a short time later.

This is the 11th year of the event, which is sponsored each year by the St. Louis stunt bike group Streetfighterz. The annual weekend has proved troublesome for police in the past, with about twenty arrests last year and over 100 citations.

By Tuesday, many bike owners were still struggling to get their rides returned. There were complaints that they’d been forced to stay in town longer to make the appropriate arrangements, which required additonal money for a hotel.

“I was in the most dangerous city in the country and I got robbed by the cops,” Joe Challoner told The Riverfront Times.

Challoner’s bike was towed Saturday, he says without cause.

Chief of Police Sam Dotson is not making any apologies.

“Only those individuals who violated the law were arrested,” he told reporters after the weekend. “Only those who didn’t have bikes that were properly licensed had issues with the law enforcement.”

Around ten bikes were still impounded at the city lot as
of Thursday. That doesn’t include the five which law enforcement says were later discovered to be stolen.

Camera Phones Capture Drama, But Not Always Full Story

PORTLAND l Towing is a uniquely stressful occupation, where professionals work alongside deadly traffic conditions and angry vehicles owners all year long. Usually when issues of road rage arise in towing, it is from the other side of the counter – a customer who turns irate or unmanageable.

Two recent incidents, however, have changed that dynamic a bit, painting towing professionals as the more unhinged party, and playing into the notion that the industry is clogged with angry and incompassionate types, ready to tow first and ask questions never.

In a time where just about everyone carries a cellphone equipped with a video camera, incidents where people lose their temper can go viral overnight, and forever taint reputations.

Shop owners can now find their entire enterprise being judged by the actions of one employee at just a single moment in time. That shortsightedness may be wildly unfair, but it is a new reality of the times we live in.

In Oregon this past week, an encounter between a towing operator and a business owner wound up being recorded, and in the aftermath a tow shop owner was left rebuilding his company’s name while his driver was left looking for another job.

The shop in question was 3 Boys Towing out of Portland, who’d dispatched a young driver to handle a vehicle stalled with mechanical difficulties. When the tow driver suddenly shouted and cussed at an elderly woman during the hook-up, a nearby business owner stepped up to handle the situation.

Instead of backing down, the driver turned his profanity-laced tirade at the business owner, all while being videotaped by someone standing nearby.

The escalating outbursts of anger displayed by the towing operator were, no doubt, what gave the story such traction in the first place. The incident was covered repeatedly in and around Oregon, and got picked up by several national news outlets.

3 Boys Towing owner Mike Heslen told KGW-News he was mortified by his employee’s behavior, something he does not condone and will not allow. The employee, who’d only been with the shop for about two months, was fired.

It’s worth noting that in many cases involving cell phone videos, the full narrative can be lost or skewed based on what happened before or after the actual videotaping. This can sometimes leave viewers with only the more dramatic elements of a fuller picture.

The story of an unhinged towing operator surfaced again later in the week when a driver near Racine, Wisc. became angered that his tow truck was being repeatedly blocked in by the same neighbors. When he decided he’d had enough, the driver smashed his way out by colliding with the two cars parked in his way. He was subsequently arrested.

Fernando Hernandez, 32, could face up to 14 years in prison if convicted on all counts, which include damaging property and endangering public safety. While it is unlikely that he will receive that stiff of a sentence if convicted, the punishment and judgments made against tow companies involved in such incidents can be just as harsh.

Customers have long memories, and in an industry where our professionals are constantly second-guessed, towing companies who fairly or unfairly get a bad reputation can pay the price for years to come.

Shop owners might save themselves a headache by regularly reminding staffers that while tempers are temporary, cameras are now everywhere – and bad
behavior can be easily recorded, shared and immortalized.

Keeping emotions in check should be standard operating procedure.

Police Say Driver Was Using On-Board Computer Just Before Crash



SALEM l As national campaigns have sprung up to encourage people not to text-and-drive, a similar problem is impacting professionals on the road who can also become distracted by on-board equipment. From ambulances to police cars, efforts are underway to make sure drivers keep their focus on the road ahead.

For towing companies, the shear weight of the equipment involved demands a higher level of precaution. Operating a GPS or networking with dispatch can be every bit as distracting as a teenager texting, or worse depending on how complicated the task is.

These distractions can lead to tragedy and potentially fiscal ruin. Shops and even drivers themselves can be left legally liable should they contribute to an accident.

On Monday a trial begins in Lynn, Massachusetts, just outside of Salem. Former tow truck driver Derek Gallien is charged with motor vehicle homicide following an accident that left two vehicles in flames and one passenger dead.

23-year-old Edward Ma was killed in July of 2010 when the vehicle he was a passenger in was struck by a tow truck while stopped at at a red light. Gallien was the driver. He and the other passengers involed were able to escape without serious injury.

A fire quickly ignited, with Ma injured in the backseat. He was unable to be rescued in time.

Police charged Gallien, who worked for local outfit G&J Towing. Investigators determined he’d been using the tow truck’s on-board computer system at the time just before impact. In addition to the homicide charge, he was also cited for speeding and failure to stop.

That type of alleged negligence could represent a considerable liability for a driver’s employer, and serves as a cautionary tale for all shop owners.

Law enforcement agencies in many areas have begun addressing the risk also shared by their officers. Training is provided to encourage drivers to tend to all equipment-related tasks such as GPS or contact with dispatch prior to rolling out into traffic.
