Maybe someone working in Houston (or anywhere in Texas) can answer this one for me...
I was watching the Repossession show on the Discovery channel. Both of these incidents happened in Houston and both were caught on tape by this particular repo company that tapes all of their jobs.
In one, they were getting a truck out of a driveway during daylight with a marked Repo tow truck and the owner came out with a handgun and fired several shots at them. They took off, the owner hopped into another vehicle and pursued them down busy streets and shot a couple more times at them from a moving vehicle. They finally pulled over in a busy area and the owner came out of the vehicle with the handgun and threatened them. One of the repo guys grabbed the handgun and they were finally able to wrestle the gun from him. By this time the PD showed up.
The dispo was: the owner was given his gun back and not charged with anything and the repo company took the vehicle.
In the second incident, they were trying to take a truck from a residential driveway when the owner came out and started a fight. He said he had a gun in the truck and would kill them. As he was trying to get into the truck he hollored for his brother to go inside and get a rifle. The brother ran into the house and as they were starting to drive away the brother shot at them with a 22 rifle. One of the repo guys ran up behind him and grabbed the rifle out of his hands and smashed it in the street. The police came and the dispo was: to "keep the peace" they ordered the repo company to unhook the truck and give it back.
I'm not even sure what the repo laws are here in
California but it seems that assault with a deadly weapon and discharging a firearm in city limits and firing from a vehicle would have been in order.
