A Bangkok taxi driver is under arrest for murder after allegedly killing an American passenger with a samurai sword after a heated dispute over a $1.50 fare, according to Thai police.
Police say that the driver turned violent on the American passenger, and attacked him with a samurai sword on Saturday over the dispute of a fare, which was a measly $1.50.
Television footage showed pictures of two men fighting, with one of them, the taxi driver, brandishing a sword. The driver said he chased after the American after he left his vehicle without paying his fare.
Local media reports the driver has been charged with murder
