Eyewitnesses say a woman who was angry about her TV being repossessed played a role in a delivery truck ending up floating in Lake Conroe. According to deputies, crews from Aaron's Rental went to the woman's home to get the television. She got upset and put their truck in neutral. The truck rolled down a hill into the lake. Bags filled with air had to be used to get the truck out of the water.

"This one floated really easy and we had it balanced really good," said Captain Gary Lewis with Towboats U.S. "It hung up on the stumps on there, so we had to put extra bags under it to get it off the stumps."

The woman took off and deputies are looking for her. Once she is found, she is expected to face charges.

The incident did an estimated $50,000 in damage to the truck and the merchandise inside.

The woman is now charged with a felony.
