A Moorhead man faces serious charges after police say he got upset with the high cost of a cab - threatening the driver and assaulting his wife. 54 year old Emerson Chasingbear was arrested for Domestic Assault and Disorderly Conduct. It happened near 30th Avenue and 18th Street South in Moorhead. Police say he was riding home in a cab with his wife, 53 year old Linda Chasingbear, when he got mad as she was paying the driver.

SGT. Steve Larsen – Moorhead Police: “The taxi driver was not hurt, he was obviously afraid, the statements and the gestures scared him, so he backed out of the area, like he should have and waited for the police to arrive, but the injuries were not serious, and he sustained no injuries, there were no firearms involved.”

Police say Linda had cut on the top of her head.
