Chevy Dealership Has Guy Arrested When They Sell Him A Car For $5,600 Lower Than Asking Price And Then He Won’t Sign A New Contract When They Realize Their Mistake
DM – A Virginia man went to a Chevrolet dealership to buy a new SUV but ended up in jail when a sales representative sold him a vehicle for the wrong price, and then accused him of stealing it. Danny Sawyer, 40, spent four hours behind bars after purchasing a 2012 Chevrolet Traverse from Priority Chevrolet in Chesapeake in May. According to a pair of lawsuit filed recently by the Virginia resident, the dealership’s staff sold him the SUV for $5,600 less than they should have, and then informed the buyer that he must sign a new contract for the correct amount. When Sawyer refused, the suits allege, a dealership employee called police and had him arrested after claiming that he had stolen the SUV. Dennis Ellmer, president of Priority Chevrolet, had issued apologies to Sawyer, saying that he never should have been incarcerated. In addition to his mea culpa, Ellmer, who manages all 11 dealerships in the Priority Auto Group, also offered to let Sawyer have the SUV at the lower price, but the 40-year-old said it is too late for that, according to the Virginian-Pilot.
Wait can you just do that? You can just call the cops and say you want somebody arrested and the cops are just like okay and show up and arrest the person and then figure out whether that person did anything illegal afterwards? That’s kind of awesome. I’d be throwing people in jail every two seconds. Seriously why didn’t this guy just show the cops his paperwork? Strange.
Regardless got to love the President of Priority Chevrolet now offering to give him the SUV at a lower price. Car salesman just never know when to quit. Bro he’s going to own the dealership by the end of the year. I think it’s a little late for a $500 dollar rebate. Your salesman fucked up. The guy has a signed contract. You can’t force somebody to sign a new contract when they already have a better contract. That’s the whole point of contracts. Deal with it.
