Argument over garlic pizza gets violent

·1-min read

An argument over two strong-smelling garlic pizzas has resulted in a woman being thrown from the bonnet of a taxi and the driver losing his licence.

The 21-year-old woman and her 23-year-old boyfriend bought the two strong-smelling pizzas in the early hours of Saturday morning after a night out in Moenchengladbach, Germany.

Their taxi driver initially refused them service because of the smell, but was eventually convinced.

But the stench became overwhelming and during the ride he stopped and asked the couple to get out.

An argument ensued in which both parties involved allegedly pushed and slapped each other, according to the police on Monday.

When the taxi driver wanted to drive on, the woman stood in front of the car to block him.

However, the 49-year-old drove off anyway, knocking the woman over onto the bonnet where she remained for a few metres as he drove before she fell off onto the road. She was slightly injured.

The taxi driver sped off, but police found the him a short time later and confiscated his driving licence. He is now being investigated for dangerous interference with traffic.
