NEWFANE — A woman who found herself stuck in the muck on Hoffman Road early Friday morning nearly found herself in county lockup for theft of services.

According to a report filed by the Niagara County Sheriff's Office, a driver for Harrington Service had reported to patrol that the woman had her vehicle winched out of mud on Hoffman Road near Hess Road around midnight. Then when she was told to pay up, she fled instead.

Patrol caught up with the woman and her white Chrysler Town & Country minivan on Root Road near Ridge Road. She copped to fleeing the scene but said it didn't happen exactly as the tow truck operator had said. According to the woman, she only had $200 of the $300 she was being charged and offered to pay the remainder the next day. The tow truck operator refused and said he was going to impound her car. She panicked and fled, she said.

The woman had originally been told the tow would cost "at least $100," but ended up charged $300 because two tow trucks were necessary to free the car.

Patrol contacted William Harrington, owner of Harrington Service, who agreed to accept $200 at the scene and allow the woman to pay the remaining $100 at a later date. He did not request to pursue any charges at the time.
