This is a crazy crazy story. Over this much money you punch someone? Really? Are you kidding me?

Wow.

TSN.ca is reporting that Patrick Kane was arrested with his cousin this morning in Buffalo on charges of assault and robbery.

Kane and his 21-year-old cousin were charged with fourth degree criminal mischief, second degree robbery and theft of services after they apparently gave a cab driver $15 for a $13.80 cab ride and wanted change back, which the driver didn't have. They allegedly punched him in the face and head. Kane has entered a plea of not guilty according to WVIB in Buffalo. Stay tuned.

That is just retarded. You mean to tell me a $1.20 is worth a black mark on your reputation? Some people shouldn't be let out in public.

By the way, where hell did the "KD" go? Haha.

When I heard this story yesterday I couldn't believe it. He's making millions of dollars and he loses it because the cab won't give him 20 cents because he doesn't have it on him. Yeah Kons it wasn't 1.20 it was 20 cents. He can get in a lot of trouble for this. The Blackhawks must be really worried right now.

If it was me, I would let it ago for that much. One time my buddy slammed a cabbie's head into the window because he tried to rip us off for taking us the longer way back to our hotel.

Just from seeing Kane in interviews and hearing this story....I'd say he is a spoiled little punk kid who think he should be able to get away with anything. I hope the league gives him a fine for his actions....this is no way for an NHL Superstar to act towards the public. There is absolutely nothing that the cab driver could have done to deserve this......NOTHING!!

I'm not in any way saying that athletes shouldn't be held responsible for their own actions, but the way some star athletes are treated from the time they are in high school leads to this sense of entitlement, the feeling that they are above "normal" people. I think that unless this treatment of athletes - where we as a society treat them as something special because of their superior physical abilitys - changes, we are going to see more behavior like this. Just off the top of my head, besides Kane, we have Michael Vick, Terrel Owens, Kobe Bryant, dare I say O.J. Simpson... People who think that normal rules don't apply to them because we have given them a place in society that implies such.

Did I miss something from Millz's quote? Didn't it say he gave him $15 for a $13.80 cab ride? That'd be $1.20 where I went to school. Maybe I read something wrong?

Either way...


Cabbie's attorney says Patrick Kane incident overblown - ESPN

Looks like he won't even get a felony.

It doesn't matter if it was $5 in the difference....nobody has the right to start punching someone for no reason...and a Cabbie not having the correct change isn't a good enough reason. If Kane wasn't such a jerk...he would have told the cabbie to keep the change. Its not like Kane can't afford it.

Well he as a court date set for next week, the lawyer of the cab driver came out and said that the cab driver over reacted. So in my opinion Kane is going to buy him out and he's only going to get a slap on the wrist. That's what I believe the outcome of the case will be.
