Booted Then Busted For Trying To Remove Boot

It was a bad day for Jovan Streeter.

First, he got booted.

He the proceeded to somehow, implausibly drive his car around the corner of where he was booted to a secluded area to try removing the boot with a hammer and a lug wrench, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

But then someone saw him trying to remove the boot, called 9-1-1 and then the police showed up to arrest him for the act.

Bummer.

Here’s a tip to Mr. Streeter. You’re going to need more than a hammer and a lug wrench to take a boot off your car.

Next time try an industrial grinder or an acetylene torch.

Read the Sun-Times full report, “Man caught trying to remove boot with hammer, wrench.”

    Dude…you missed the point.

    It’s a 2 tier system to get on the boot list now.

    2 tickets Over 1 year Old OR 3 tickets or more over 21 days old.

    Legit Booting you C0CK.

    I got the boot off. But then got impounded the next day. Will the impound charge me for the boot or report me to the police?

    Kay,

    Ouch.

    Here’s what you’ll need to do to get your car back.

    1-Pay off your outstanding ticket debt (or work out a payment plan).

    2-Pay the boot fee ($60 I believe).

    3-Pay off the tow/impound fee which is $160 plus a daily fee of ($10 I believe).

    The boot and the impoundment are making your ticket debt even higher. Like I said…ouch.
