Cab driver hit and run after argument 

"cabbie vs passenger who slammed his door too forcefully. Escalating from a small conflict on the sidewalk into a full on personal dodg'ems session on Blvd St-Laurent. One minute I was drawing pictures of stadiums, next minute somebody is fighting for their life.."

Drunken Quebecers decide that, not only are they entitled to the rest of Canada's money, but they're also entitled to do whatever they want, whenever they want, without any consequence.

MONTREAL—Disturbing images are circulating on the Internet, showing a man apparently being run over by a taxi cab in Montreal.

A 23-year-old man was in hospital Sunday with serious but non life-threatening injuries following an overnight confrontation in a downtown district.

Police say a 47-year-old taxi driver and some of his clients are being investigated, and there could be criminal charges.

Const. Yannick Ouimet says it appears the taxi driver was having an argument with three clients and told them to get out of the taxi. One video shot by a man apparently watching the escalating dispute from a second-storey window captures yelling, swearing and several people kicking the taxi. One of the men jumps on the roof.

Moments later the taxi is seen circling back and driving right over one of the men.

The car then speeds away, down the street. Police are aware of several videos circulating online and say they are being used in the investigation.

Montreal police Const. Raphael Bergeron said the 47-year-old cab driver was arrested on an allegation of assault with a weapon. A 42-year-old passenger was also arrested for mischief. Charges have not yet been laid.
