DALLAS (AP) - Twenty-six people whose cars were towed during the Texas-Oklahoma football game will be given refunds of about $200 each from the company that towed them.
Lone Star Auto Services announced yesterday that it has agreed to reimburse the towing charges and is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of anyone involved in parking the cars.
City officials launched an investigation after people questioned the amount they had to pay to get their cars back.
The cars were towed on Oct. 11 from what the motorists thought were legal parking lots near the State Fair of Texas.
The Dallas Morning News reports Lone Star representative Anna Casey said the company wasn't involved in parking the cars, only the towing.
Refund checks will be mailed this week.
