A Chicago cabbie, who is charged in a workplace shooting, may need to hail some legal help.
 
Frederick Bailey, 63, of the 8700 block of South State Street, was charged with aggravated discharge of a firearm, said police. 

 
The Chicago Carriage Cab driver argued with two of his co-workers at their cab company in the 2600 block of South Wabash Avenue Friday, the Sun-Times reports.
 
Bailey is accused of shooting the men, hopping into a cab and driving off, said police.
 
The South Side man turned himself into police at the department’s headquarters at 3510 S. Michigan Avenue about an hour later, said police.
 
The cabbie is charged with one shooting because one of the two victims refused to cooperate with the investigation, said police.
 
Bailey remains in jail on a $450,000 bond.
