Fare Beater

    A passenger attempted to stiff a yellow cab driver on his fare. At 1:18 AM on Tuesday, August 13, a 27-year-old male taxi driver picked up a male passenger with long blonde hair at Sixth Avenue and Houston Street and drove him to First Avenue and East 79th Street. When they arrived at that destination, the passenger presented his credit card for payment, but it was declined. The passenger then got out of the cab without paying, and the cabbie tried to stop him. The passenger kicked the cabbie and pushed him to the ground. The taxi driver later complained of pain in his left knee and right ankle. Police searched the area but could not find the fierce fare beater.
