"I went to the towing yard to pay to get my stuff out of my car, but when I showed the owner the title he said he couldn’t do it bc it wasn’t in my name, he talked to my dad over the phone & still wouldn’t let us (even though we just bought it). So I asked him to give me my title back so we could leave. He refused to give my title back & made a copy of it without my permission, then he asked to see my license but I told him no.
(He wanted the title & my license so he could claim the car as his own & profit from it). I kept telling him to give me my title so we could leave but he refused to unless one of us gave him our license. Since we wouldn’t give him our licenses, he walked off & tried to go back into his shop with it. Since he wouldn’t give it to me, I took it out of his hand.
He put his hands on my head & put me in a clinch then tackled me forward onto my back. I tried to stand up but his buddy came & put me in a headlock. They tackled me over a Huge oil tank & continued to choke me out until I collapsed. As we were wrestling, the owner, Paul, said “get off me nigger”.
I asked my friends to record the incident & call the cops. They kept trying to steal my paper from me while I was on the ground until finally the cops showed up. I asked the cop to tell them get off me, but the cop said nothing & helped them pin me. The cop then handcuffed me & put me into a cop car while he listened to their side of the story."
