Sure, transportation is pretty expensive these days with oil prices on the rise. But pulling a knife on a cabbie still isn't the way to protest a fare, Orem police say.
That was the lesson a 34-year-old man was learning from behind the bars of the Utah County Jail on Wednesday.
Allegedly intoxicated, the suspect called for a taxi to pick him up early Wednesday morning near 1100 North and State Street. Then things began to go south, so to speak, as the suspect asked about going north to Salt Lake City.
