Caught on tape: Stolen SUV crashes into several cars after confrontation with cabbie

A standoff between a cab driver and the driver of a stolen SUV ended with several cars being hit in the Lakeview neighborhood.  It was all captured on camera.

It happened a week ago on West Belmont Ave at Southport.

It all began as a small fender-bender between the cab driver and the 19-year-old driver of a black SUV police say was stolen.

The cabbie got out of his car and began yelling at the driver for bumping into him.

When the 19-year-old had enough,  he started to get-away but hit other cars in the process. Then side-swiped the cab.

Police caught the still unidentified 19-year old down the street  who is now facing a variety of charges.

    Um ok and the cabbie attacks the guy with a pipe and is not arrested for that? Really? So it’s ok to attack people if they hit your car? Had the cab driver waited for police to arrive versus taking the law into his own hands none of this would have happened. The cab driver should be charged as well and fired!

    It helps if you actually steer the vehicle to avoid other objects if you want to get away, ramming cars back and forth doesn't work very well. What an idiot.

    If your going to steal a car you should at least know how to drive.

    This criminal has obviously played way too much "Grand Theft Auto 5"… ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
