LAST UPDATED: 01:26 a.m. HST, Dec 16, 2013

A 36-year-old man stole a tow truck briefly Saturday afternoon because his car was about to be towed, police said.

According to police documents, a tow truck operator attempted to tow the man's vehicle, which was parked on private property, in the Waikiki area around 3:15 p.m.

The man then harassed the tow truck driver and entered the unattended truck, driving it across the street, police said. He was arrested around 3:45 p.m. on suspicion of unauthorized control of a motor vehicle.

At least he didn't drive it onto Waikiki Beach like that other guy who went for a joyride in a piece of construction equipment.

Good idea. Now instead of only a ticket and a tow charge, he'll be charged with a felony.

Tow truck companies are full of criminals anyway.....plus many of their "tows" are unwarranted.
