Police: SF Cab Driver Charged With Aggravated Assault After Pointing Gun At Other Driver

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – A Sioux Falls cab driver is behind bars after police say he pulled a gun on another cab driver.

Fifty-eight-year-old Jozef Barszcz is charged with aggravated assault. Police say Barszcz was parked behind another driver at the Sioux Falls Regional Airport last night. When the light turned green for the other driver to move forward to pick up a fare, police say he wasn’t paying attention so Barszcz went ahead of him. The other cab driver followed Barszcz to the terminal and confronted him.

Sioux Falls Police Officer Sam Clemens said, “(He) made a comment about why he was so impatient and why he jumped in front. He said the driver pulled out a handgun and pointed it at him, and told him to get away from his vehicle, and then the suspect drove away.”

Police say Barszcz turned himself in at the Law Enforcement Center. They say he does have a concealed carry permit and the gun is owned legally.

Police couldn’t say for whom the drivers worked.
