Two Fox Point sisters are accused of slapping and racially taunting a cab driver after he drove them home from the bars on July 4.
According to a Fox Point police report:
The two young women picked up a cab from Water Street around midnight on July 4. They had told the cab driver that they would pay the driver in cash, but when they arrived at their home in the 6800 block of Barnett Lane, they only had a $20 bill to pay for a $25.50 cab fare.
To pay for the remainder of the fare and a tip, they charged another $10 to a credit card. The cab driver told them that they "should not cheat a cab driver," referring to their failure to pay fully in cash as promised.
One of the women got angry at the cab driver and called him a "(expletive) Indian." Then, while laughing, she opened the driver's side door and slapped him in the face.
When Fox Point police arrived at the house that night, the girl said she did not know whether or not she slapped the cab driver. When she was further questioned about the incident, she said “This is ridiculous! He’s an Indian!”
The woman told the police they had no reason to be on her property, and threatened to "sue the (expletive) out of all of you." She called out "Mom!" several times during the encounter.
The two women were cited for battery and disorderly conduct. They appeared in Fox Point Municipal Court this week, but they have hired legal representation and the case is still pending.
