FULL TITLE: Enraged female motorist 'bites' tow truck driver and smashes windows as her prized SUV is taken away for repossession

A female motorist has been accused of savagely biting a recovery man after he arrived at her home to tow away her vehicle for repossession.

Lakeisha Smith, 29, from Spartanburg, South Carolina, flew into a rage on Sunday evening when Scott Fowler came to pick up her prized Cadillac Escalade, with part of the event caught on camera.

Cell phone-filmed footage shows her trying to drive the luxury SUV off the tow truck before manically smashing in all of the windows with a tire iron.

A repossessed Cadillac Escalade and a violent owner named Lakeisha...if you made up a story with those elements you would be accused of playing to sterotypes and being a racist...

She was pissed because she left her food stamps in the glove box.

The article has a picture of Lakeisha, and its not the one of her at the hospital charity gala in her evening gown.

Yup, thought so.

Only certain types of folks think the long outdated and totally shoddy Gubmit Motors Caddy Suburban....er... Fat-O-lade is worth being seen in.

Did she leave her Obamafone in it also?

She’s certainly “thinking outside the box” but I can’t figure out how this improves her current situation.

“Repossession” indeed.

Sounds like she was never exorcised.

Maybe she should have sold those expensive wheels on it to catch up on the payments.

Never mind the windows, did you see the video? She damaged the tow truck and the driver as well!! Plus now the tow truck driver is getting harassing phone calls. No she was not happy to lose her SUV that she was entitled to, she had to make everyone else's life who works a misery.

Not including tax, title, and license costs, a new Escalade has a base price of $64,740.

Who loaned this woman that kind of money, especially given that she has had two past cars repoed?

They’ll likely write off the SUV and sell it as is for a fraction, then sue her for the rest. Once she gets out of jail of course.

The auto title loan company is now planning to seek civil damages against Ms Smith.

It told ABC News that it isn't the first time she's had an altercation during a repossession and two similar scenes kicked-off in 2011 and 2012.

I am curious how she manages to keep getting loans - and this one was for a very expensive vehicle.

“...the judge ruled she was not a flight risk.”

Well, of course not. Her Escalade is gone and she doesn’t live on the bus line.

Yes I saw that and I don’t get why he does not arrest her right there on the spot!

Because each year after she gets her $6,000 EITC ‘refund’ she goes out and plops down half of it and then signs a loan for umpty-ozen percent high risk APR. Salesmen don’t care if they get their commission and they work to push it through. Add one month’s on-line insurance from “The General” and you’re all set - simple, really. That’s how.

I don’t care about the SUV. It’s the tow truck driver I care about. I hope his insurance helps out. Both on his truck and on HIM.

She revved that engine to hell and back. Must have redlined it four or five times for prolonged periods. No oil circulated, I’m guessing it’s not an engine I’d consider long term. My guess is there is head gasket and probably temp damage to the cooling system seals.

If he’s been repossessing cars long this isn’t the first time he’s been assaulted. She’ll be paying his medical bills. Although that may be touch if she can’t pay for the car.

Oh, I guess she over-reved it maybe? Rev limiter should have prevented damage. Would have been interesting if it had been AWD.

How, at age 28 and with no particularly large income, was this individual able to convince some total fool to loan her the money to buy an expensive vehicle like that? A new Navigator or Escalade usually runs about $60,000 including tax.

Anyone can buy any type of car they want. Those "NO CREDIT! BAD CREDIT!"-type dealerships don't care. They'll charge you a astronomical interest rate, place a GPS tracker in the car and if you can't pay, the repo guy picks it up and they'll sell it to someone else.

While the housing bubble has received all the news, a car bubble has been happening as well, and for the same reasons; people who have no means to afford nice cars are able to purchase them.

It wasn't long ago I read a sob story about a single mother who worked as a janitor lamenting her inability to make the $1000+ monthly payments on her convertible BMW. Her car was repoed and now she can't take her kids to the doctor or go buy groceries. She placed the blame on one of those corner lot dealerships --the only ones who would sell her a luxury BMW due to her poor credit rating and low income.

You’re right. I remember hearing grinding. At the time I think she revved it in forward, and then pulled it into reverse and revved it again.

She is one seriously agitated and unstable entitlement mind crazy b!tch. She belongs in a jail for a long time. She destroyed a $60,000 I’d be willing to bet she never made even $10K payments on at any time.

I know a guy who owns a used car lot. He will sell to anyone. After April 15th is his busiest time. They plop down money on exactly what they want, he charges 20% interest and doesn’t check credit and carries his own loans, and then installs a GPS on the car so that when they don’t make the payment he knows where it is and repos it......then starts the whole process again. lol Its easy money for him.

The man probably needs to go get checked for rabies. Those ferals can get nasty when you take away part of their ghetto toys that feel self entitled to. How dare that white man take away her vehicle that she stopped paying’ for. Why he should make the payments for her. After all he is white and whites are rich.

It is quite possible that she has some “boyfriend” who does God knows what for a “living”, and he had “business problems”. As a result, he couldn’t keep up the payments, and they repossessed the car.
