Alan G. Bishop, 34, of 190 Stone St., Apt. 2, who has been out of prison for a year, was under city police custody Sunday morning for his alleged failure to pay a $6 cab fare.
Police arrested Mr. Bishop at 12:50 a.m. at his apartment on a charge of theft of services on a complaint filed by Yellow Cab. He failed to pay for his ride from 136 Scio St. to his residence, police alleged.
