A shocking YouTube video captured by a taxi’s dash cam depicts a vicious attack on a cab driver by an alleged United States Marine in Surf City, North Carolina.
John Adam Kinosh allegedly repeatedly punched driver Charles Hawkesworth in the face after arguing with him over a cab fare.
Kinosh became enraged after Hawkesworth told him to split the fare.
The marine, a Gunnery Sgt. assigned to Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command, proceeded to swing on the frail cab driver, leaving him with multiple facial fractures and needing 15 stitches.
The 30-year-old marine now faces two counts of assault inflicting serious injury and one count of communicating threat.
