NEW YORK – A New York City cabbie's license has been suspended after surveillance video showed him pulling a pregnant passenger out of his vehicle and driving off.
CBS New York reports (http://cbsloc.al/1vypAis) that passenger Leslie Cooper says last week's fracas caused her to deliver her baby five weeks early.
Cooper says she climbed in the cab and the driver told her his credit card reader was broken. She offered to stop at an ATM near her home, and he told her to get out. It was cold, and she refused.
Video shows the driver pulling up to a curb, getting out and pulling Cooper from the car. She landed on the ground, and he drove off.
New York City's Taxi and Limousine Commission said Tuesday that the cabbie's license has been suspended.
