Authorities in New York City say a cab driver is facing criminal charges in connection with a physical altercation caught on camera earlier this week.
According to Fox News, 25-year-old Alyssa Jenna Mallett allegedly attacked other motorists in traffic on Thursday, possibly because she thought she was cut off by the other vehicle.
As video footage reveals, the suspect appears to pursue a man and woman in a Nissan Rogue, as reported by WABC. She then “punched, kicked and scratched the couple,” according to police, before heading back to her vehicle.
Mallett allegedly struck couple’s SUV — which also contained an 11-year-old and 2-week-old passenger — and another vehicle as she drove away from the scene in midtown Manhattan.
Reports indicate the children were not injured and the adults received first aid at the scene.
This was not her first allegation of wrongdoing in just over a year as a licensed taxi driver in the city.
At the time of the incident, she was facing hearings for claims including refusal to pick up a fare and inflation of charges.
Just a few months ago, she was arrested by the Port Authority police on suspicion of hitting a passenger with a cellphone.
She reportedly pleaded to dismissed charges and had her license reinstated following the June arrest at LaGuardia Airport.
Her Taxi and Limousine Commission license was once again suspended after her arrest this week.
