Abusive tow truck driver loses certificate

A tow truck driver who resisted arrest and called police “chicken s***” after they pulled him over for speeding in a Sydney school zone last year has had his operator’s certificate disqualified.

NSW Fair Trading has declared Sam Hannoun is not a fit and proper person to hold a towing certificate and disqualified him for two years.

Executive director Valerie Griswold says the action will protect consumers because Hannoun has been in direct contact with the community.

“While disciplinary action is serious, it is intended to give the individual time to consider their actions and return with a new outlook and appreciation for their licence,” she said in a statement on Sunday.

Hannoun let rip at the officers after being pulled over following the traffic incident in Bankstown on March 26, 2020.

“You’re a chicken s*** and that’s why I hate chicken s***s,” he told them, according to evidence heard in Bankstown Local Court.

“If you were somewhere else mate, I’d f***ing deck you”.

Hannoun was convicted of resisting a police officer and intimidating an officer and sentenced to a two-year conditional release order on June 4.
