MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – There is more trouble for a Minneapolis towing company after a Ramsey County man filed suit against Cedar Towing, seeking class-action status.
Wayne Spar claims the company overcharged him and forced him to pay in cash.
His lawyer says he asked the tow-truck driver if he could move his car before it was towed. Spar claims the driver demanded $100.
When Spar went to pick up his car, he claims he was charged more than the maximum allowed for a tow under a Minneapolis ordinance. That maximum fee is $212 for a tow and $28 dollars per day for storage.
Cedar Towing is currently under investigation by police for overcharging people. The company hasn’t commented on the lawsuit or the current investigation.
