Busted ASAP: Orlando man charged with grand theft, accused of predatory towing at 2014 Gay Days

ASSOCIATED PRESS

ASAPORLANDO -- Authorities have arrested a man they say illegally towed cars during Orlando's 2014 Gay Days celebration.

Orange County Sheriffs deputies arrested 45 year-old Jason Combs for towing more than 100 vehicles between June 5 and June 9. The annual festivities draw tens of thousands to the area. The arrest comes after numerous complaints that Combs' ASAP Towing company targeted victims based on their sexual orientation.

Combs' attorney did not immediately respond to email and phone messages left by The Associated Press Saturday. Authorities say ASAP Towing made at least $16,000 towing the cars but lacked permission to do so. Investigators are also looking into collusion with cab companies who lined up to take the drivers to the tow lot. Combs is charged with 29 counts of grand theft auto.
