It’s Tough Being A Cabby In New York City

Here’s the short version: a cabby was arrested after being attacked by two drunken women who claimed he took their cell phone. The cabby, Jaaphar Abdul-Hamid, is suing the city over his arrest.

The details in the story are entertaining in a frightening “I’m glad it didn’t happen to me” kind of way:

Meanwhile, the “highly drunk girl,” began yelling, “I am fine, I only need a bathroom” and demanded to be taken to a gas station or a Dunkin’ Donuts, the suit says.

As Abdul-Hamid pleaded with them to leave the cab, the “highly drunk girl” spit on his face through the open partition. Both women then got out, leaving the passenger-side door open.

But when Abdul-Hamid went to close their door, the “highly drunk girl” hopped into the driver’s seat and dropped his keys down a sewer drain. And when Abdul-Hamid tried to call the cops, the women attacked him, knocking his cellphone to the ground, and the “moderately drunk” woman stuck it in her purse.
