Rider pulls knife on California cabbie but leaves tip

Sunday, December 26, 2010

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- A California taxi passenger may have an anger problem, but he's no Grinch.

Police in Sacramento got a report that a man pulled a knife on a cab driver during a dispute but still made sure to pay his fare -- plus tip.

The Sacramento Bee said the rider argued with the driver about his desired destination Dec. 18, then pulled out a folding-blade knife, prompting the driver to run away on foot.

The passenger also fled -- after leaving his cab fare and a tip.

Police said the passenger has not been found.
