Answer: Under A.R.S. section 28-872 (http://www.azleg.gov/ars/28/00872.htm, a police officer may remove or tow a vehicle for several reasons; if it is left unattended, if it was used illegally, or if it was unsafe. Another reason a police officer may order the vehicle to be towed is if the person driving is arrested for an alleged offense where the person is required by law to be brought before a magistrate without delay. .
