One of Karl Dean's former political directors was arrested Monday night and charged with two felony counts as the result of a dispute with car repair shop Precision Autohaus. The owners of the shop say Derrick Tibbs last month refused to pay them for work on his Mercedes-Benz.
Tibbs has a different story, though. He told The City Paper he had to take the car off the lot in order to get a loan to cover the high repair cost. After he left, his car broke down, he said. He had it fixed for $500 by another repair shop.
Precision Autohaus claims they never released the car to Tibbs.
