A towing company in Dutchess County is under fire tonight for alleged unlawful business practices.
The 300-page suit against the business, Bobby's Towing, and owner Robert Scores, details how some incidents went against City of Poughkeepsie ordinances. It said they towed cars while the owners were there or overcharged people, even falsified tickets and made racist remarks. 
The Attorney General's Office says it began to get consumer complaints back in 2013.
As a result of the lawsuit, Attorney General Letitia James wants to prevent Scores from operating a tow truck business unless he gets a $100,000 bond. She is also seeking compensation for customers. News 12 called the company. A person who answered the phone said he had not seen the paperwork and wouldn’t comment yet but looks forward to it.

If you’ve had similar issues with Bobby’s Towing, the Attorney General’s Office is asking people to call 845-485-3900 or file a complaint with the Poughkeepsie office.
