The following are reports recently generated by the Houston Police Department:
•A representative of a towing company called at about 10:30 a.m. Oct. 31 to report that personnel at the Shell gas station on U.S. 63 had requested that a 1998 Chevrolet sedan be towed from the property because it was blocking gas pumps.
A computer check revealed that the car was registered to a Houston man.
•At about 9:15 a.m. Nov. 5, an officer responded to the Shell station regarding a report of a 2001 Dodge Ram abandoned in front of fuel pumps. That vehicle was registered to an Independence man, and it was also towed.
I feel that the question would be did the vehicle go out of gas at the pump? Was the gas station open or close? Would a property tow be entitled to a wrongful tow hearing? The question would be subject to research from TDLR rules
