A man who allegedly carjacked a San Francisco cab early Friday morning led police on a freeway car chase, ultimately crashing in Richmond, where police arrested him and cited him for drunk driving, police said.
According to the preliminary San Francisco police report, a cabdriver was carjacked at 15th and Mission streets shortly after 3 a.m. The driver had been taking his passenger around for roughly an hour when the fare asked to go to Burlingame, the report said.
When the cabbie refused, the passenger forced the driver out of the cab, started the car and took off in it, according to police.
Police chased the cab over the Bay Bridge and into Richmond, where the alleged carjacker crashed into a ditch and was arrested.
