A court case for a Chattanooga woman charged with attacking a cab driver with a baseball bat was rescheduled until March.
According to police, 27-year-old Taleisha Latasia Sims was with her boyfriend when she called a cab. When the Mercury Cab Driver arrived, he said Ms. Sims asked him to help her restart her dead car battery.
The driver, Robert Peck III, told her if he helped he would have to charge money because the cab belonged to the Mercury Cab Company.
Upon hearing this, Mr. Peck said she became upset. He said she went back inside the house and came back out with her boyfriend and a baseball bat.
According to police, Ms. Sims threw the bat at the driver, striking the cab. He said after this, she stood on the porch, screaming, "I sure did."
When police arrived, they said she claimed she had only slung the bat in the driver's general direction. She said she did not throw it at him.
Ms. Sims, 28, was charged with aggravated assault.
