Florida Man Arrested For Being A Total Buzzkill At Disney’s Gay Days

ORCO_PRED_TOWING.transferWhile Disney-loving queens were partying it up to what we can only imagine to be deep house remixes of the Frozen soundtrack at the annual Gay Days at Disney World in Orlando, FL in early June, one local man decided to try out the role of evil mastermind. It’s not going so well for him.

Jason Combs, the owner of ASAP Towing Company, spent the celebratory weekend illegally towing car after car from a parking lot across the street from the DoubleTree Hotel, Gay Days’ host. He had no authority to tow, and his company has been described by local residents as “predatory.” It’s estimated he made around $16,000 in towing fees.

Along with the 29 counts of grand theft auto he now faces, investigators are also looking into the possibility that Combs’ actions could be considered a hate crime as it appears he targeted the victims based on their sexual orientation. Eyewitness reports claim Combs and his employees were “aggressive, using sexually charged slurs.”

If convicted, Jason’s about to enter a whole new world.

      Take my advice, Dum*sh*t… use liquid soap when you take a shower in the slammer! 15-30 ought to do quite nicely for all umpteen charges!

      Knowing that this is Florida, this jackass will likely get a slap on the wrist, if he should get a judge who thinks what he did was admirable! Let’s hope he gets a judge who is willing to throw the book at him good and hard!

      Ugh. Can we excise this state from the union? I am so exhausted of hearing such stories of intolerance and bigotry coming from this rancid section of the country that I’d rather watch it burn to the ground in its entirety than have to deal with this kind of behavior.

      @tdh1980: Rather we should excise the PEOPLE FROM this State, but we need the land. Just find them another small, small island with no transportation!

      @martysdad2013_873: Seems to me a bit like Christie and the bridge. Wherever their sympathies might lie otherwise, *nobody* likes their car being illegally towed, and letting towing companies get away with it encourages more. Especially since he had no way to be sure his victims were even gay; they just happened to be parked near a particular hotel.

      Still, as hate crimes go, stealing cars is a nice change from violence.

      He needs to repay all of the costs to every car owner. And the his punishment (if there is any, as others have said) should be for all 29 counts.

      @sfbeast: Queerty says 29; the linked article says over 100. Either way…

      Maybe only cars with equal stickers, rainbow anything, and Obama stickers got towed.

      Or maybe just the clean, well-maintained cars.

      @sfbeast:

      ” He needs to repay all of the costs to every car owner. ”

      I guess a judge could force him to do that. If not, then civil lawsuits with him paying the attorney fees would be OK and maybe even pay some punitive damages.

      as often as the trailer parks get leveled in this state I’m surprised there are any of these hatemongers left.

      The problem with lawsuits is a guy like this will just file bankruptcy and then open up another tow business under another name. The best bet is the Judge making him refund all the money back to the those who had their cars towed or sentence him to jail. His employees will get off because they were “told to do it”.

      Blanket statements about a state is just as wrong as his ignorance.

      HA! Most ‘Blanket Statements’ re Florida can’t begin to cover the crazy that comes from that state. Here’s one; A guy has a gun range on his property next to the busiest canal on his FL key. His aged parents are the lookouts when he shoots. His neighbors, the county, EVERYONE, is barred by state law from even approaching him on doing something about it. Fu*#@in’ Googgle it, lol.

      @Dakotahgeo: Sorry to comment on your comment.. But I didn’t see a way to add a new comment…

      I created an account here to support this asshole. Freedom of speech.. But after reading the story, I see that the title is so fucked up.. It should state “Man Illegally Tows Cars of Gays Due to His Homophobia”…..

      @dmanhart: Silly, silly, did you think there
      was any reason you would find good journalism on queerty? They just say whatever
      they want for any reason. Can’t let good reporting and editing get in the way now can they? I mean what next then? A concise who,what when, where and why with
      properly annotated quotations? God forbid I’d have a stroke.

      Hate crimes are ridiculous. Glad he was stopped even if cops as a whole tend to be fascist bastards.
