North Bend, Oreg., cab driver James A. Hartwick picked up a
fare at a night club and started to deliver him to his destination.
After they had traveled a short distance, the passenger leaned over
the front seat and placed a knife at the cab driver's throat. The
"fare" then ordered Hartwick to take him to a secluded spot where he
took the driver's money and his wrist watch. He then ordered the
cab driver to take him back to town. At the intersection of a busy
highway, Hartwick suddenly jammed on his brakes, throwing the robber
off balance. The cabbie managed to pull a gun from his belt and
shoot the thug. The man was taken into custody by police who were
sitting in a parked cruiser at the scene of the shooting.
