    Bam! Pow! Cab fare!

    A 27-year-old cabbie punched another taxi driver in the head in Lake Forest, Illinois after the two argued over a customer who was just trying to catch a ride from the train station.

    “One cab driver thought the other cab driver was stealing his customer,” Michelle Kousins, spokeswoman for the Lake Forest Police department told the Pioneer Press.
    Virginijus Ruzijevas, the puncher, was arrested and released on $75 bond. The other guy was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

    Blame it on the economy.
