    That cab driver and Houston should face charges. Crazy!! And, if they have not already, returned any money collected to the family.

    The girl should face charges. She put several people in horrible situations. The cab driver was doing his job and just trying to make a living. She probably looked twice her age (as most kids do nowadays)

    Good Outcome, Bad Outcome, We all notice the Police want to charge somebody with something, That is if they are not Police. The Driver was doing his Job and his job is not to Meddle in everyone's business. She appeared to be of age so end of story on his part. Actually the Family should pay him the Remainder of the Fare. His Company dispatched him to do the Job, He was doing his job. No Red Flags were thrown up.Everyone should be just very thankful that it turned out the way it did, And stop trying to make Criminals out of people acting in good faith. "I am sure everyone has noticed that everyone searches for charges to be filed in nearly all cases about almost everything in this day and age"
