Woman backs over repo man with car

  • Follow Metro

A man repossessing a car early Friday morning was struck by the car's owner when she backed over him, according to a report.

The victim, Mickey Koelling with Professional Auto Recovery, told a deputy that he explained to the suspect, Raven Williams, who he was and why he was outside her apartment on the 2100 block of Vandivere Road.

When Williams got into the car, Koelling assumed she was removing some of her personal items, but Williams turned the car on instead and put the car in reverse, a report said.

Koelling was hit in the leg, but not badly injured.

Williams fled the scene but Koelling plans to press charges of reckless conduct, according to a report.

Maybe NOW, all you people

Maybe NOW, all you people who voted for that LOSER are regretting it? Huh? It takes a little research and TIME to find out about a person and what he REALLY is representing and what really happened in his past to vote for the RIGHT person! Voting on someone cause he seems charismatic, is maybe a good speaker, or cause of his/her color is NO REASON TO VOTE FOR SOMEONE!!!! DAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

alycias, I might have

alycias, I might have commented the wrong way in this response as stated before. This is about a repo man and not President Obama. There was a President from 1992 to 2000. There was a President from 2000 to 2008. This man came into a house that needed cleaning up. I have said before, God is not going to allow anyone to get the credit until we as a nation acknowledge him. Not the Democrats, Not the Republicans and Not the new Tea Party.

The BEST thing about the

The BEST thing about the "Cash For Clunkers" program is that it took abotu 85% of the Obama bumper stickers off the road.

Another failed LIBERAL program that cost far more than it produced.

Just think, slightly more than two more years (If we survive that long) and Jimmy Carter Jr will be out of office for good!!!! November is going to bring some real CHANGE to America and a turn onto the road to recovery.

Oh yeah....It ain't no joke if you don't pay that note!

Cars have been getting

Cars have been getting repossessed since there has been car financing. And now after more than half a century on the planet I suddenly discover that the reason a car is repossessed is NOT that the person did not pay their bills, but whichever president is in the white house. AMAZING!!!

Some of you people have Obama

Some of you people have Obama on the brain. You can't get enough of him so you inject him into every issue that comes up. This is about some stupid repo man who thought it was more important to stand behind a car that some woman didn't want to give up. My uncle is a repo man and he always says the car ain't more important than your life. You know where the woman lives and you can follow her to where ever she goes and still get the car. Don't put your life in danger and try to stop someone from leaving.

OIC, most people don't bother

OIC, most people don't bother to read their contracts, you probably never have either evidently, but usually, the right to repo for non payment is right in that little binding thing called a contract that you sign!! It also usually includes the paragraph where it talks of you will be responsible for the repo fees and any shortfall they may have when reselling the vehicle. That's whats wrong with most people, they want want want, but don't want to pay or earn it, sign sign sign loans without reading the contracts or being able to afford it, then whine when the people they screwed want their money or property. That entitlement mentality is sickening and we need to put a stop to it!

This is not about Obama. This

This is not about Obama. This is about someone who thinks they are entitled to finance something, not pay for it, and attack a person who wants their rightful property back. Oh wait.......the Obama analogy does apply. See Obamacare and Stimulus vs. the taxpayer.
==============================
dichotomy - beautiful!! You nailed it!

This is funny. Made for TV
Unpublished

This is funny. Made for TV material. I'm not one who tends to care much for people who make a living out of someone else's misery, IE repo men, Jail Report and.........some lawyers. I'm sure the lady's car needed to be taken back but can't help but stifle a little laugh here. I'd like to have seen this incident on the Repo Man TV show.
Perhaps a more efficient method of getting the back payments caught up would be to utilize the same type wheel boots they use in big cities to lock down cars that accumulate a lot of parking tickets. Would be effective, cheaper, and maybe save some bottom feeding repo man from injury......

Make a living out of someone

Make a living out of someone else misery? Bottom feeding? It's not like these guys cause these peoples misery. What, you just want the seller to be out of all the money and let the non payer just keep the car for free? And don't hand me that take them to court crap because you never actually get paid that way. And yeah ok, you want to put a boot on it so it sits there in the same spot for the purchaser to get [filtered word] off about and tear up the car so its worth nothing and the lender is still out a whole car. No proof of who tears it up while its there unattended with a boot. No one with common sense wants to hear that bleeding heart nonsense. You should preach to the people who buy something they can't afford, or if they could and cant now, they should just give it back, not rip off the seller. What about the people that non paying purchaser is ripping off? What about their bills, their families? They should just suck it up and eat it??? They should just pay for the car, give it back, or not buy beyond their means to start with!! I bet there was plenty of luxuries this woman could have sacrificed to make her car payment, but thats not the Entitlement American way is it???

Cash for clunkers has indeed

Cash for clunkers has indeed caused many problems and this MAYBE one of them! A friend of mine had his truck stolen and he is looking to replace it. It was an old knock about used to go hunting,haul construction material etc so he did not want a new one. All the trucks with the years and mileage he wants are $2,000.00 to $4,000.00 over book value. I talked with a couple of used car sales people and they all say used cars are way over value and the profit margin is to slim, they are buying very few used cars and those they do are high value because of cash for clunkers (600,000 vehicles were taken off the road and rendered usless). One of my favorite haunts is Pull a Part junk yard, you should have seen the pristine quality of some of the cash for clunker cars!!! I was also told the government has not given some of the cash to the dealers so the dealers are holding onto the titles. I went and talked with a fellow who has done body work for me, he said cash for clunkers has hurt his business for a while because people traded in used cars they would have fixed! I have been told that repo companies are doing great because of cash for clunkers, people bought more car than they could afford. The fun part starts when people have to pay taxes on the money they recieved with cash for clunkers because it is income. Another will ran government program...Now the government is going to run your health care..BWAHAHAHAHA..past failure is no indication of improved performance as my mutual fund advisor would say...

You people are ignorant! You

You people are ignorant! You will use any medium to promote your racist agenda. How ignorant of you to blame President Obama for this situation. It's 2010. The 21st century and you still act and think you're in the 1800's. You use technology to hide since you are too cowardly to wear a white sheet.

mjct1 Your words of wit

mjct1 Your words of wit are spoken like a true OBAMANITE keep blaming the republicans for the mess.Your hero added to the mess a FAILED stimulas package,Obamacare that 65% of the country did NOT want,bailouts,record unemployment.failed mortages,should I go on.What do you think of your hero now,this man takes more vacations than any president in history the country is falling apart,and we can blame the OBAMA SOCIALIST PARTY for everything.Your hero beats one of the worst presidents in history and its not the 3rd worst Jimmy Carter,it's James Buchanan the 15th president,and a quote "He failed ENTIRELY during his administration" just like your hero is doing.Next time get the facts because I hate to match wits with UNARMED people.

takeastand: Yeah, I said it
Unpublished

takeastand: Yeah, I said it "bottom feeders". I'm no bleeding heart liberal, just the opposite. I think the woman should lose her car if can't pay for it. But I have little respect for people who feed off other people's misery. Perhaps you should look at the television shows to see the sorts of people performing these services....Dawg the bounty hunter, a white trash low life with such a dysfunctional family he gets s TV show. The Repo shows, what absolute rednecks. Ambulance chaser lawyers. Jail Report: a magazine that uses mug shots to entertain, and in some cases at the expense of innocent people or some who screw up one time and become laughing fodder for sale and public humilation.
The boot on the tire deal apparently is working JUST FINE everywhere it's in use.
I say again I have no use for 'bottom feeders".
