A Man is Caught Skipping Out on a $250 Cab Fare . . . Because He Had the Cab Drop Him Off at Home!
You'd THINK even idiot criminals would realize that if you're gonna stiff a cab driver, you do it when he's not dropping you off at your OWN HOUSE. This guy was NOT that smart. Early on Sunday, 22-year-old Nicholas Pinell took a cab from the French Quarter in New Orleans to his home about 55 miles away in Houma, Louisiana. The fare was $250. But rather than pay that, Nicholas jumped out of the cab and ran inside. The cab driver called the police, who came and arrested him for theft. They knew exactly where he lived, after all.
