Two Men Take Boise Taxi for Joyride after night of Drinking
BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Two 21-year-old Treasure Valley men were arrested over the weekend after a taxi cab was taken from outside a bar. Boise police say James L. Teget of Boise and Jeremy E. Laughran of Meridian were arrested on suspicion of felony grand theft after a taxi was taken at about 3 a.m. Sunday.
The driver said he left the vehicle running when he went into the bar to find the person who called for the cab. Witnesses say they saw Teget and Laughran get into the cab and drive off. Officers quickly stopped the cab. Court records say Teget failed several field sobriety tests and also faces charges of driving under the influence and driving without privileges.
