is it true that in the State of Pennsylvania, if you physically try to stop a repoman from taking your car that he must leave it behind?

Thank you for submitting your important legal issue to Just Answer. I am pleased to have the opportunity to provide you with an honest and easy to understand answer to your question.

I am an attorney licensed in the State of Texas. The following information is a brief answer to your question. However, if you feel that you need further information or that you have other insights which might help me in providing a better answer, please feel free to write back.

It is not exactly true that if you attempt to stop a repo man he has to leave the car behind. What is true is that repossession of a vehicle cannot cause a "breach of the peace." Thus, if you were attempting to repossess a car and you had to use physical force against a driver, then you have surpassed your legal allowance in repossession. However, a driver of a vehicle cannot get out of the car and then assault you as you are repossessing the vehicle. If the vehicle is repossessed, and it causes a breach of the peace, then the repossession was not accomplished legally.
