PERKINS TWP.

Two cab drivers, apparently vying for passengers, argued over fares Monday night.

Instead of keeping his passengers, one of the drivers was arrested by Perkins police.

Police found the two arguing near the Greyhound Bus Station on Milan Road at about 8:30 p.m. They learned Alexander L. Brown, 56, 1400 block Lindsley St., became upset after another cab driver, Jason Brake, 37, offered a $2 fare to his passengers. That was half the price of Brown's fare, the report said.

Brown became "upset at the situation" and grabbed Brake's shirt, police said. Witnesses also said Brown swore at the driver and tried to pull him out of the vehicle.

The passengers got into Brake's vehicle for the cheaper fare.

Brown got a disorderly conduct charge.
