CALGARY — Police have charged a man in an attack on a Calgary cab driver last spring.

Investigators say the driver was taking two men into the downtown area on April 18 when they suddenly wanted to get out.

The driver stopped and the passenger in the front seat allegedly slapped him in the face and tore out a dashboard camera.

Both men fled without paying.

The cabbie wasn't badly hurt, but it cost several hundred dollars to repair the camera.

Jeffrey Thomas Gasson, who is 32 and from Calgary, is charged with assault, mischief to property and transportation fraud.

He is to appear in court on Sept. 14.
