Sydney Leroux had a rough day on Wednesday. Nobody likes having their car towed, and our favorite US women’s soccer player was not about to let hers go without a fight.
Leroux parked her car in a tow zone and returned to see it being hooked up to the dreaded truck. After taking a quick video of the scene, she apparently decided the tow truck driver was going to have to run her over if he wanted to drag the car away.
“Over my dead body this tow truck is taking my car,” she wrote on Twitter. “#iwishyouwould.”
We’re guessing the tow truck driver eventually won out, because they always do. LeBoo later had a pretty entertaining explanation for why she thought it was OK to park where she did.

I’m not sure that excuse will hold up during an appeal, but it’s a pretty damn good one. Good thing Leroux wasn’t wearing that white dress she dominated the ESPYs parties with. We’d hate to see that thing get ruined.
