Daily Digest – January 3. Florida Man Charged With Shooting at Agent; CarMax Sees Originations Go Up, Losses Go Down


  • A Florida man has been arrested and charged after allegedly shooting a handgun at a repossession agent who was repossessing the man’s truck. The agent had repossessed the vehicle and was driving away when he noticed that the truck’s emergency brake was on. When he stopped and got out of the vehicle to disconnect the brakes, he heard a loud banging noise and noticed a man running at him and shooting a gun. The agent got back into his truck and dialed 911 as he drove to a nearby gas station.



  • CarMax grew its auto loan portfolio while also shrinking its losses during the third quarter of 2017, the company announced yesterday. The company cited increased demand for used cars as the likely reason for the uptick in originations.
