I had gotten into an accident on a private property lot with another person I had known. It was a simple accident that broke my tierod and did not have the means to have it towed that night so I had to wait two days until I got paid. I managed to have it placed in a legal non tow spot that was completely legal to sit there. Heck forever if I wanted to, I could of even put up a for sale sign and sell it from this spot if I wanted to. Anyways, I come back the next day and its gone. Everything was legal! Tags plates, registration, insurance, heck you could hardly tell it was even in an accident. Anyways, come to find out, sterling heights police towed it saying there was a hit and run around 2am in Utica which was three miles away and they said they thought I ditched it there thinking I was drunk. I ended up calling Utica police and Shelby Twp police, not mentioning what had happened and asked if a hit and run was even reported around that time. Both said NO! Then, the officer I had talked to wanted to talk to the person I had the accident with and said everything would be fine and I would get my car back after they talk to the person I had an accident with to confirm it was on private property. It WAS confirmed then the cop said I can go get my car now. They told me it was at the Sterling Heights Impound Yard. So finally after all that confusion I went to get it but they wanted $700 to get it out!! Oh ya not to mention that the detective that took the case just so japoened to go on vacation the day after the tow so it took 7 days for her to finally answer my calls and release the car. Because she put a hold on it. Ugh anyways, worse comes to worse the impound lot here IS basically police too and they dont care and nobody seems to care that they messed ul and im a single parent of three that lives paycheck to paycheck. I ended up having to sign my title over to the scrap yard AND PAY THEM $200 MORE DOLLARS ON TOP OF THAT OR THEY SAID THEY WOULD GO AFTER ME FOR MORE!!!!! SO I LOST MY ONLY CAR AND $200 AND MORE THAN THAT IN THE LONG RUN BELIEVE ME. ACTUALLY I ENDED UP LOSING MY JOB AND HOUSE AND EVERYTHING STEMMING OFF THAT INCIDENT. THE STERLING HEIGHTS POLICE AND THE STERLING HEIGHTS IMPOUND LOT ARE IN CAHOOTS AND SCAM ARTISTS AND DO NOT PROTECT AND SERVE!!! THEY PROTECT AND SCREW!!! THEY ARE HEARTLESS AND BY THE WAY THEY TREATED ME, I WOULDN'T GIVE A *** IF THEY ROTTED IN ***!!! I GIVE 2 BIG FAT MIDDLE FINGERS UP TO BOTH THESE COMPANIES.
