Woman fined 1,100 yuan for kicking her cabbie

A Japanese woman was ordered to pay 1,100 yuan (US$173) to a Shanghai cabbie for injuring him in a dispute over radio volume.

The Changning District People's Court heard that the woman, known as Yuri, took a taxi on March 2 and told the driver surnamed Wang to turn down the radio as she wanted to make a phone call.

After Yuri finished the call, Wang turned up the volume again but Yuri asked him to turn it off. Wang said he refused and Yuri kicked him from the back of his seat.

Wang told the court that he felt his waist couldn't move so he stopped the car and called the police. Hospital records showed Wang suffered contusion in his left waist and should take one week off.

Wang then sued the Japanese passenger to court and demanded 1,700 yuan in compensation.

The court said Yuri admitted kicking Wang in the car and was ordered to pay 1,100 yuan to him.
