Rochester man throws up on cabbie – and then attacks him
A Rochester man is facing an expensive taxicab bill – and an expected assault charge after attacking a cab driver early this morning. Police say the 31 year old man initially had the cabbie drive him to a friend’s home in the southeast part of the city around 1:30. When they arrived, the intoxicated man told the cabbie he wasn’t familiar with the site and told him to drive him to his northwest home. The man became ill when they arrived and threw up on the driver. The cabbie then told the man he owed him $42 for the ride and another $100 to clean the vehicle. The man became upset and assaulted the cabbie, who then called 911. Police arrived and arrested the man.
