The Lizard Lick Towing reality series on TruTV evolved from the All Worked Up series on the same network. The towing company had been featured on All Worked Up but was only in segments of the show.
Now Ron and Amy Shirley have a show of their own called Lizard Lick Towing on TruTV with Ron’s co-worker Bobby Brantley assisting Ron in repossessing vehicles, motorcycles and in one case deer.
Like most reality shows we don’t know for sure how much is reality and how much is scripted. One thing for sure is that Ron and Bobby find themselves in some scary situations.
These bikers who had seen their motorcycle repossessed show up at the office demanding their bike back.
They still get the bike but not before fighting with the bikers. Then the bikers come to the towing company breaking the glass front doors with a chain demanding to have their bike back.
When Ron tells the bikers he had already dropped it off with the lender who held the title a fight ensues and the bikers who outnumber Ron proceed to work him over. His wife Amy gets between Ron and the bikers and tells them they can settle this another way.
Then after all is seemingly peaceful again Bobby comes running into the office and the fighting starts again since Bobby didn’t know the situation was under control and after Amy stops the fighting for a second time Bobby is shown with blood streaming down his leg and he is heard complaining about the bikers ruining his shoes.
Another episode shows Ron and Bobby trying to repossess a car and the man is infuriated when they start hooking up the car to tow it away. He jumps up on the trailer and drives the car off the trailer and parts of the front end are coming off the car.
Then he drives it into a lake. Then Ron and Bobby use some psychology on the guy and tell him that he won and that they were dumb and that if he would hook a chain up to the car in the lake they would pay him $250.
After hooking it up Bobby pretends to get money to pay the guy but instead of paying him pushes him into the lake.
That night Ron takes his wife Amy who is pregnant out to a local pizza place but makes the mistake of using the towing truck for the date. The same guy who had been pushed in the water passed by the pizza restaurant window and Ron knew he had to do something so he called Bobby to help him fight the dude.
Meanwhile Amy knew something was going on with Ron since he was acting so suspiciously. When Ron and Amy go outside on their way to the truck he is confronted by this guy again. Ron and the man start fighting and Ron’s wife Amy is not a happy camper as this date has turned out to be a disaster.
She drives off leaving Ron there by himself but Bobby takes him to his house to see if he can calm down Amy but she won’t let him in the house so he has to spend the night at Bobby’s house.
My question is that it seems suspicious that the guy knew Ron was at the pizza restaurant and Ron may have been told by producers to make sure to drive his towing truck so there might be a confrontation at the restaurant since if he had driven a car the guy may never have known Ron was inside the restaurant.
The show is filmed in the Wendell, N.C. area .
