File this one in the over zealous bin.
What is this word turning into. I mean OK the woman owes some cash but seriously do you have to knock her out in front of her kid. Some people either take their jobs too seriously or are just nuts. The Boston Globe has the article up..
A debt collector trying to repossess a 2000 Ford Focus tried to yank a young mother out of her car so violently that he ripped off her necklace and punched her in the face, a prosecutor said today in court.
While the woman’s 5-year-old daughter watched in horror Friday, another debt collector jumped on the hood like a �madman,� said Brendan Barnes, a prosecutor for the Plymouth County district attorney’s office.
Afraid she was being carjacked, Sara Bradley, 25, drove to the Abington Police Department with the man clinging to her hood while his partner followed in another car. The two debt collectors from South Shore Auto Recovery — Robert Simeone, 21, and his brother, Michael, 17 — were arrested and charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.
Seriously did she really owe that much.
