Meanwhile on the other side of Union Square, a taxi driver and 31-year-old Michael Findley, of Pasadena, California, got into a dispute. Police said Findley got out of the taxi cab, pulled the driver from the cab, stole the cab before crashing nearby into a traffic light.
Findley was treated for minor injuries at Bellevue Hospital and then arrested on charges including robbery, reckless endangerment and driving while intoxicated. No one else was injured.
