Montreal, Canada - The altercation lasted close to 15 minutes, according to witnesses.
A group of young men kick and jump on the cab. Until finally the taxi speeds away knocking down a man, leaving him gasping for breath, and the driver behind bars.
Guercy Edmond is charged with assault with a weapon, his own car. As well as aggravated assault, dangerous driving, and hit and run.
The victim is in stable condition while another 42-year-old man, who was hitting the car, was arrested but then was let go on a promise to appear later.
He's likely face charges of mischief.
Jonathan Himsworth shot one of the amateur videos of the incident from his apartment window.
"It became extraordinarily loud and angry."
He says it all started when one of the taxi's passengers got out and slammed the door.
"I was wishing they would let it go, that there's no resolution to be found here, obviously the door was slammed too hard, obviously the four people in the cab are not going to have a friendly conversation with the cab driver about this."
Taxi drivers across the city are siding with their colleague:
"They gonna charge the taxi driver, it's not right, because it's not his fault. He got attacked "a sa place, moi j'aurais fait pareil"
I would have done the same, says this driver. He did what he could.
Montreal police say they're still investigating and talking to witnesses.
They also plan to speak with the hospitalized victim, who could face mischief charges.
