MAMMOTH MAN ARRESTED FOR ASSAULT ON CAB DRIVER
Dustin Gene Rasnick, 25, of Mammoth Lakes was arrested and booked in Mono County Jail on July 30 on a charge of assault with great bodily injury after allegedly fighting with a local cab driver.
The victim told officers that Rasnick had reached from the back seat and choked the driver after Rasnick was told that he and his friend owed extra cab fare because the other passenger had vomited in the back seat. The fight spilled out into the street, where a resident saw what was happening and called 911 while trying to intervene.
