Man Who Hijacked NYC Cab Claims He Was Drunk, High And Groped By Driver

Man Who Hijacked NYC Cab Claims He Was Drunk, High And Groped By Driver

A man who stole a yellow cab in New York City in February 2011 claims that he was high, drunk, and groped by the driver during the incident.

Michael Findley appeared in court yesterday, representing himself, and offered numerous reasons as to why he should be let off the hook.

His main argument was that he was drunk, and that was justification enough to let him get off the hook for stealing the yellow cab and crashing it into a utility pole that was supporting a traffic light.

Findley allegedly spilled food in the backseat and didn’t have any money after driver Mohammed Latif drove him to the West Village, and that’s when things escalated.

The two got into a verbal dispute, which ended when Findley walked over to the driver’s side door, punched Latif in the face, and then drove off in the taxi.

Findley was arrested and charged with robbery, reckless, endangerment, driving while impaired by alcohol, grand larceny, speeding, driving the wrong way on a one-way and disobeying a red light.

Findley has been arrested 15 times since he moved to New York in 2007.

Findley also blames being on cocaine for the incident.

It wasn’t all Findley doing wrong if you ask him, however, as he claims Latif grouped him, touching him on his “things, on my butt, between my legs.”

Yeah, we’re gonna take that detail with a grain of salt.

Walmart apparently never got the memo that “fat” […]
