Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Authorities had to forcibly stop a driver who stole a taxi early this morning.

Moorhead police say 24-year-old Cody Littleghost had hailed a cab at the Empire in Fargo, asking to be taken to South Fargo. He became agitated and tried to grab at the driver, saying he wanted to drive.

The driver pulled over and got out of the vehicle. Littleghost then jumped into the front seat and took off toward Moorhead. Minnesota State Patrol eventually stopped the cab on Highway 75 with what they call a "pit maneuver".

Littleghost was arrested on multiple charges and taken to the Clay County jail. He refused alcohol testing, but police believe he may have been intoxicated.
