Eeeew! Calgary cab driver assaulted with bag of vomit

CALGARY — A 33-year-old woman has been charged with assault after a bag of vomit was hurled at a Calgary cab driver.

Police say early Sunday morning a taxi driver picked up a woman who grew nauseous and was provided with a bag to vomit into during the ride home.

Upon arrival, the passenger continued to throw up on the exterior of the vehicle and when the driver requested a cleanup fee the woman became abusive.

Police say that included throwing the full bag of vomit on the driver, covering his clothes, phone, car seat and floor mats.

Officers were called and the passenger's family paid the cleanup fee and fare.

Selena Narayan-LaChapelle has been charged with common assault and is scheduled in court Oct. 14.
