London: England batsman Kevin Pietersen`s car was towed away after his parking permit expired, leaving the player fuming as he called it `daylight robbery`.

According to The Daily Star, the batsman angrily tweeted `following the truck to the pound` after the incident.

The report said that the star had to pay a 240 pounds release fee after the 4x4 was seized from outside his house in Chelsea.

Pietersen was recently also involved in allegations that said England and Australian players were using silicon-tape coatings on bats to fool the Hot Spot technology.
