Man who took $3,000 cab ride sentenced to 35 days

MEMPHIS, Tenn. USA  — A man who last month got a $3,000 taxi ride from Miami and then refused to pay the bill was sentenced to 35 days in jail. The Commercial Appeal reported 53-year-old Lucilo Perez told the cab driver his wife would pay for the 1,600-mile ride when they arrived. The trip took 20 hours, including rest and meal stops.

When his wife didn’t have the money, Perez was taken to jail.

He pleaded guilty Wednesday in General Sessions Criminal Court to a reduced charge of theft of property under $500. Under a plea agreement he was sentenced to time served. He was not required to pay restitution because he had been declared indigent.

(Ed. The newspaper reported there is no word on how he got home from jail 🙂
