A taxi driver was racially abused and spat at when he challenged his passenger over an unpaid fare.

He was spat at in the face and called a 'f****g P**i' during the shocking attack when he picked up McCauley Baines from a Huddersfield supermarket.

The 20-year-old lost his temper when the cabbie brought up his failure to pay for a previous trip.

Baines – himself a victim of racist attacks – admitted that he was disgusted by his own behaviour.

He pleaded guilty to racially-aggravated assault when he appeared at Kirklees Magistrates' Court.

Prosecutor Alex Bozman said that on the afternoon of March 18 Baines requested a taxi from Huddersfield Taxis.

A short time later the driver picked him and his female companion up from the Aldi car park in Beck Road.

They loaded their shopping into the boot of the car and Baines got into the back seat.

Mr Bozman said: “The complainant looked at him and realised he was somebody he'd been on a previous journey with and not paid for that so he challenged him about it.

“Mr Baines responded by swearing at him, calling him a 'f*****g P**i'.”

The driver told him to get out and also exited to inspect his vehicle to make sure that there was no damage done when Baines removed his shopping.

Baines then spat at the driver, hitting him in the face. He had left his wallet in the car and went to retrieve it but the victim managed to hold onto it until police arrived.

Mr Bozman said: “He felt upset at what he was called. He thought it was racist and he shouldn't have that happening to him at any stage.

“He was concerned about any diseases transmitted by being hit in the face with the spit.

“He's also concerned as there's nothing to stop him from being targeted in the future.”

Sonia Kidd, mitigating, said that her client was “disgusted with himself”, particularly because of his Asian heritage and the fact that he had personally been targeted because of his race in the past.

She explained that Baines, of Blagden Lane in Newsome, had suffered from past traumas and had an issue with anger management.

Bench chairwoman Julie Houston commented: “The racial element is really quite horrible.”

Baines was sentenced to a community order as a direct alternative to custody.

This includes 25 rehabilitation activity days focusing on problem solving, thinking skills and anger management.

He must comply with a four week curfew between the hours of 7pm and 7am.

Magistrates ordered him to pay £100 compensation to his victim plus £85 court costs and £85 victim surcharge.

Yeah right. :---)

Was he also disgusted the previous time when he didn't pay the driver.

Or is he only disgusted when in court?
