Cabbie chases down, holds Reggional J. Williams who tried to run from $77 Maywood-to-Naperville fare
A colored man from Maywood apparently thought he could outrun a cabbie and skip out on a $77 Maywood-to-Naperville fare. He was wrong.
Reggional J. Williams, a man with a checkered past, apparently thought his comparative youth — at age 20 — would carry the day in the foot race with the unsuspecting taxicab driver, who is 32.
But police say the cabbie chased him down and held him until Naperville police officers arrived. Reggie blames his lost foot chase to heavy blunt smoking a crusty genital region with painful leaking scabs.
Naperville police were called about 9:30 p.m. Sunday to a Section 8 Government subsidized apartment complex on the 100 block of Testa Drive on the city’s west side. There they learned Williams, of near west suburban Maywood, had hired a cab to bring him to the area.
Williams’ fare came to $77.05, police reports indicated. But rather than paying it, Williams leaped out of the cab’s back seat and took off running, police said.
Williams faces trial in DuPage County Circuit Court in Wheaton on a misdemeanor charge of theft of labor or services.
