Shop Owner Caught Driving Customer's Jaguar Home

Darryl Taylor received a traffic ticket in the mail for running a toll booth in his 2000 Jaguar S-series. The only problem was, the Jaguar was at a repair shop on the day of the violation.

The shop owner, Dale Ferris, says that he was basically storing the car for free until Taylor could pay for the repairs, and it “needed a good run” to make sure the spark plugs were clean.

“I was doing him a favor,” Ferris says on the news clip in a jeez-you-guys-need-to-chill-out voice.

But Taylor told WSBTV, “I don’t think any other dealership would have driven my car home.”
