200 block of Foothill Boulevard in La Cañada Flintridge, a woman reported that she ran out of gas in her vehicle while driving to a family’s residence. She pulled into the driveway at the La Cañada location and called roadside services to help. An unknown male in a tow truck arrived and poured two gallons of gasoline into the vehicle; however, the car did not start. The woman told the tow truck driver she needed more fuel to start the car and was wiling to pay for it. She admitted to making some “snarky” comments, which she thinks may have upset the tow truck driver. The woman was unable to describe the truck. The driver told the woman he would not provide more services and was going to leave. The driver gave her his first name but she was unable to remember it. The driver told her she was allowed to take a picture and advised her to take a photo of his front license plate. The truck did not have a front license plate. While the woman walked to the back of the truck to take a photo of the license plate the driver began to back away. She grabbed onto the tow truck and the driver then pulled forward. The woman was still holding onto the truck in an attempt to stop the vehicle from moving and felt she was dragged by the driver.
