“Blood, Sweat & Heels” star Geneva S. Thomas was reportedly arrested on Tuesday for ditching a cabbie before paying!
Apparently the reality star exited the cab before paying the driver her $18 fare. The cab driver then provided the address he dropped her off at to the authorities and tracked her down. Geneva was arrested and now the taxi company is looking to pursue theft charges against Geneva!
However, Thomas is screaming the entire incident is a load of crap and suing everyone involved. Geneva has a court date set for January.
*Update With Geneva’s Response*
On September 9, 2014, Geneva S. Thomas was involved in a dispute with a New York Yellow Taxi Cab Driver. Upon entering the vehicle, Geneva informed the driver of her desire to pay via credit card for services rendered and that she did not have cash. The driver became threatening and hostile following a line of question as he attempted to deviate from the planned route as a method to unfairly increase the fare. The driver became defensive and tried to force Geneva out of the vehicle in a highly trafficked area. Geneva placed two calls to 911 to diffuse the disagreement—once while she was in the cab and secondly upon arrival at her final destination. Geneva values the time and services of others, and was fully prepared to pay the agreed rate of $15.00. Geneva, along with bystanders on the scene, offered to pay, and the cops refused to allow anyone to do so. The New York Police Department proceeded with an immediate arrest without investigation. In this unfortunate situation, the New York Police Department’s unjust actions demonstrate an ongoing and well-documented pattern of behavior. The cab driver himself stated the arrest was unnecessary. Geneva finds these charges to be frivolous and unwarranted, and looks forward to proving her innocence. Geneva and her team will take action to create awareness ensuring this never happens to another woman in New York City ever again.
