Driver Mistakenly Snagged Six Times For Being Illegal Cabbie

Posted on June 24, 2014

Walter C. Parrish III has been ticketed six times in the past two years by city Taxi and Limousine Commission inspectors who accused him of being an illegal cab driver. He has won each case. His latest ticket was issued on June 5, 2014. At Parrish's June 19 hearing, a TLC representative withdrew the ticket and the judge dismissed the case.

A part-time New Jersey livery hack who occasionally drives people into the city has been accused of being an illegal cabbie a half dozen times by TLC inspectors in the past two years — and each time a judge threw out the case.
