Woman Arrested for Threatening Tow Truck Driver with Gun as Husband's Car is Being Impounded for DUII Arrest

WEST LINN - On Friday, February 20, 2009 at 8:49 p.m., Pavel Borisovich Rostilov (32) was arrested for driving under the influence of intoxicants. During the arrest procedure Mr. Rostilov's wife, Liliya Yalova (24), arrived at the scene from their home about a half a block away in the 2000 block of Tumwater Street. Officers believed she was intoxicated. While Mr. Rostilov was being transported to the Clackamas County Jail by Officer Tony Poitras; the arresting officer, Officer Brad Moyle waited for the tow truck (M&M Towing) that had been dispatched to impound the car. A short time later, while Officer Moyle was watching Mr. Rostilov’s vehicle he saw Liliya Yalova drive past him in a Toyota Camry. He broadcast the vehicle information to other officers in the area as he believed she was intoxicated. Once the tow truck arrived Officer Moyle left and assisted in the search for Ms. Yalova. During the officer's search for Ms. Yalova, she returned to the scene and confronted the tow driver from M&M Towing. She threatened to go get a gun if he towed her husband's car. She then went home and the driver called the West Linn Police Dispatch. While the officers were enroute, Ms. Yalova came outside with what appeared to be a gun. The tow driver then left the car and drove away. When the officers arrived Ms. Yalova had gone back into the house. Officers closed off the 2000 block of Tumwater Street and used the public address system, in their cars, to call her out of the home. After about 45 minutes she came out and was arrested for DUII, Menacing, and Disorderly Conduct. She was also lodged at the Clackamas County Jail. The car was then impounded.
