GREAT NECK, N.Y. -- She was trying to stop her car from being towed, but a Queens woman ended up being towed herself.

Truck driver Donald Wilson was about to tow a BMW from a Waldbaums parking lot at about 3:15 p.m. Tuesday when the car's owner saw what was happening and argued with him, Nassau County Police said.

Wilson then began to drive away with the woman standing on a running board, hanging on to the side door of the tow truck, police said.

He allegedly kept going for about two miles before he was stopped by police officers.

Wilson was arrested on a charge of reckless endangerment and issued three tickets for violations of town ordinances, police said. The woman was not hurt.
