There's the right way to protest your vehicle being towed, and there's a wrong way. The individual in the video after the jump is a clear believer in the latter method. We aren't entirely sure where this took place or what sort of circumstances led to this particular Mazda3 to find itself doing battle with a massive claw-equipped tow truck, but we do know that the four-door is doing its best to avoid incarceration. After somehow managing to get the vehicle back on the road, the driver proceeds to attempt to free the wheels and tires from an array of cumbersome straps. Despite a few valiant attempts, the driver doesn't seem to be able to break free from the claw's grasp.

Now, we have to say that this type of tow truck appears to be designed to limit potential damage to its cargo under normal circumstances, which makes it all the more unfortunate that the Mazda owner decided to go Rambo. Odds are the tow truck itself sustained plenty of damage, and while the grainy nighttime video work makes it hard to see exactly what's going on, we have to imagine that the rear suspension on the Mazda isn't in any better off. Hit the jump to see the ill-fated automotive acrobatics for yourself.

      What a total idiot. Not only do you tear your car up but you risk the lives of other people nearby by being a complete jackass. No fine is worth this.

        Anyone who is still near the car after seeing this go down, accepts their own fate.

      If that wasn't anything but a repo, man what was the point? Over a towering fee? Had to be totally stupid drunk

      Couldn't see anything in that dark... But rip Mazda... I hope the owner is rich enough to destroy a car instead of paying what? 50 buck towing fee...

      Does anyone else think of the SNL skit with Mike Myers harnessed to a jungle gym.

      This moron probably had outstanding tickets and deserved to get towed. Then he totals his car by trying to escape, then rear ends another car..lock his ass up

        Yeah, stick it to the man. By destroying your suspension. And risking your safety. And risking the safety of others. Genius!

      If you will go on to show that type of stupid videos, I won't follow this site any more! You should decide if this is a website that shows us the exact shape of new Boxster much before than other sites or this is just a website that only try to attract more attention. You could be sure that you could not be the best for both worlds. You should choose one.
