ASSAULT: A taxi driver for Chesapeake Cab Inc. was assaulted by one of his customers on June 7 at 12:45 a.m. outside of Catamaran's in Solomons. The taxi driver advised Dep. Jason Lord that he had picked up the customer, later identified as Richard F. Lakin, 38 of Lexington Park, in St. Mary's County and transported him to Catamaran's, where Lakin exited the cab. A new customer got into the cab but Lakin then also tried to get into the cab and demanded that the driver take him home. When the driver explained that he now had a new customer and couldn't drive Lakin home, Lakin became disorderly and threatened the driver with a knife, stating that he would slash the tires if the driver didn't take him home. The driver rolled up the window and called police and Lakin left the scene, walking south along the boardwalk. Dep. Lord responded and contacted Lakin on the boardwalk. He was arrested and charged with second degree assault and disorderly conduct.
