Avoiding a $10-$15 taxi fare proved to be an expensive venture for a 44-year-old local man.

After an investigation, police were able to determine the identity of the man.

Upon leaving the premises shortly before midnight, the woman started swearing at the security guard and punched her several times in the head and upper body, police said.
