Bobby New Threatens Car Lot Owner with Arrest if Media exposes him

The Austin Police Department's tow contractor, for over 30 years, Southside Wrecker's owner today,  threatened to have arrested a local used car dealer if he went to the media about the delay notification letter scam.  New has claimed many times that he has APD in his back pocket, but according to Chief Acevedo, that is simply not so.

Just because Southside has several family members who have retired from the Austin Police Department, Bobby New has no authority to have anyone arrested, especially for airing his backroom negotiations with the City of Austin in reference to their contract to the media.

If New is concerned about media coverage reference this issue, the City Council and the public will have their opportunity to see for themselves on March 27th during Citizens Communications.
