Well, Marshawn Lynch should give Patrick Kane a buzz and compare their downtown Buffalo experiences. Patrick Kane and his cousin, James Kane were arrested early this morning for robbing and beating up a cab driver. The pair allegedly punched the cab driver and grabbed money they had handed him after he told them he didn’t have twenty cents in coins to give them their change, the report said.
Their fare was $13.80 and they handed the driver $15, according to a report. The cab driver told police he was punched in the face and head, grabbed by the throat and had his glasses broken during the incident. WOW! DOUBLE WOW! I didn’t know Patrick Kane was such a cheap skate. I mean it’s 20 cents, were you trying to buy a hot dog off the street. For all you people who don’t take cabs you should tip your cabby at least 2 dollars. Both men were charged with second-degree robbery, a Class C felony, as well as fourth-degree criminal mischief and theft of services, both Class A misdemeanors.
The hometown hero was in Buffalo this week to announce funding to repair a South Buffalo ice rink. Its going to be interesting what the coverage is like on WGR and TBN, considering both media outlets have been very vocal about Marshawn Lynch’s off the field problems, to the point of calling him a punk and asking for him to be cut. Kane is still very young, but to beat up a cab driver over 20 cents? That’s a little extreme. Maybe watching old Bruce Smith highlights form the Hall of Fame got him fired up. So much for hockey players not getting in trouble.
