Fare evader: At 2:50 a.m. Oct. 29, a cab driver picked up an inebriated man at Polk and Vallejo streets.

At 19th Avenue and Vicente Street, the man started to strangle the cab driver. The cabdriver stopped and called police, and the man ran into a park after throwing a crumpled up $10 bill at the cab driver.

Just go with the flow: At 5:55 p.m. Nov. 1, officers were undercover on a Muni bus in the area of Mission and 30th streets when they noticed that there was a man drinking beer on the bus.

But the man began yelling and said he would not sign the citation. The officers allowed the man to relax before issuing the citation. The man was given a date to appear in court.
