A taxi ride ended up costing a man nearly $600 after he hailed a cab in Knoxville for a ride to McMinnville.However, it wasn’t the fare that cost him. It was the court costs and restitution that came after he failed to pay the cabby after reaching his destination and was charged with theft of services.The man, Antonio Jermaine Parker, 42, of Nashville appeared before General Sessions Judge Bill Locke this week for arraignment and opted to plea out his case. He was placed on probation for an 11-month, 29-day period and will be allowed a judicial diversion.
