We are watching KTLA and some bozo went on the radio and spoke about Howard Stern and his 'member' and his 'boys.'

And it is over. I wonder why he stopped. Maybe he got as bored as we were getting watching it.

KTLA5 showed this twitter message on TV. :p

"If you're waiting for a AAA Tow Truck in Hollywood/Los Feliz right now, you're pretty much screwed."

Great viral marketing for AAA going on the streets of Hollywood right now. Next level stuff, guys.

Tow truck company says it is not their driver. Truck was taken.

Story I heard now is that the company had just lost their AAA contract, and was working out of their area chasing wrecks, showing up at wrecks and playing the "I'm from AAA" card and then trying to charge them. Police caught on to them this time around, and when they called him out and told him to sit in his truck and stay there while they sorted stuff out he took off.

The story I heard is that the officer questioned the driver about his license ( probably the Los Angeles Police Comission License)
