“Cedar Rapids police say an Illinois man stiffed a cabdriver out of his fare — which is illegal — and then left his wallet behind in the cab — which is stupid.
Police Sgt. Cristy Hamblin says officers arrested 39-year-old Kenneth Lindsay of Loves Park, Ill., late Wednesday night at a Cedar Rapids motel.
Officers say Lindsay allegedly bolted without paying his $19 fare. Officers used the identification in Lindsay’s wallet to find his room and arrest him for theft and public intoxication.
A charge of interference with official acts was added after Lindsay allegedly tried to kick out a window of the squad car that took him to the Linn County Jail.
Lindsay was released on bond after a court appearance Thursday. It was not immediately known if he had an attorney.”
How about that? Isn’t it wonderful?
