Getting towed is really annoying, not to mention expensive.

However, this guy in Chicago had an idea about preventing his vehicle from being towed.

He parked somewhere he wasn't supposed to. So, he came out to see a tow truck hooking up his car to take it away.

He wasn't happy. So, he got into his car, dropped it into gear, overpowered the tow truck and just drove off!

Who knows if he ended up getting caught or not. For now, though, he's a genius.
