Taxi Driver Arrested For Assaulting Gay Couple Who Kissed In His Cab

by Rob Smith March 08, 2016

Obviously not the real couple.

A taxi driver in Vienna was charged with assault after verbally abusing and attacking a gay couple who kissed in his car.

The couple exchanged a brief kiss while taking a cab in Vienna’s Third District in the early hours of the morning, which enraged their driver. According to The Local:

…the taxi driver, who was not named, was furious and started swearing at them. According to the pair he told them: “I don’t want anything gay like that in my car.” One of the men, 37-year-old Manfred, said: “He was using foul language and calling us arseholes.”

To add insult to injury, the man had felt he was completely in the right and demanded that the pair pay up for their incomplete journey. He then tried to throw them out and when they refused, he called the police expecting backup. When one of the men pointed out that he needed to be a bit more open in his view of the world, he had then shouted: “People like you need to be shot.”

The driver then punched the other man in the face and had to be restrained by police officers, who then arrested the driver and charged him with assault.
