Mixing taxicabs with drunken people and guns? Bad idea
A couple of taxicab drivers had some bad luck with their passengers on April 15. One group was drunk and “rambunctious,” another had a gun.
In the first incident, a woman called police and said that drunken people got in her car while she was stopped at a red light at the intersection of Lake Avenue and W. 117th Street at around 2 a.m. April 15. She kicked them out of her car. When the group finally found the real taxicab, the driver eventually “kicked ‘em out because they were being a little rambunctious.”
Later that evening, a taxicab driver told police that after he picked up a man in the 2000 block of Robin Avenue at around 11 p.m. April 15, the man tried to rob him at gunpoint following the ride to Cleveland. The taxicab driver grabbed the barrel of the gun and wrestled with the man until the suspect opened the door and took off on foot near Triskett Avenue and W. 117th Street in Cleveland.
