2007_01_taxi2.jpgTwo guys beat up a taxi driver early Monday morning because he was being honest: The driver told the men he didn't know how to get to their Bronx location. Gilbert Ruiz opened up the front passenger door and "slugged the cabby in the mouth" and then threw the cabby's bag on the street. When driver Frederick Dsouza went to get his bag, Christopher Lopez "pounded him to the ground," and then Lopez and Ruiz both beat and kicked him.

The police arrested the two. While the NYC Taxi Rider Bill of Rights says that riders are entitled to "Direct the destination and route used" and "Travel to any destination in the five boroughs of the City of New York," deciding to beat up a driver who says he doesn't know how to get there is certainly extreme.
