The driver said he was near Stillwell Avenue at 2:20 am when a man came into the cab and said “drive now, I’ll pay after.” The driver said “pay now,” and the man then got out of the car, threw a glass bottle at the driver’s head, and then punched him in the face, according to the police report. The man next went into a store, grabbed some milk, and threw that at the driver too, cops said.
