TOMS RIVER - The Ocean County-based towing company accused of price gouging in the wake of Superstorm Sandy has filed a lawsuit against Seaside Heights for an unpaid towing bill, according to published reports.

APK Towing is seeking a $348,000 towing bill, plus $2.6 million in damages.

The Toms River company reached a settlement with the state after local police and the attorney general's office investigated. APK was cleared of any wrongdoing and the company agreed to release all cars towed between noon on Oct. 27 and Nov. 9 at no charge, according to USA Today.

The report says that borough officials are not acknowledging the claim.

APK's lawyer says the company has no choice but to sue because its owners are just trying to make a living.
