An abusive taxi passenger ended up sitting on the pavement with a sore head when he came off worse from a row with the driver.
The footage, which was filmed in central London in the early hours of Friday, shows the passenger shouting and swearing at the cabbie as they argue over the route he’s taken.
The driver then slams on the brakes, causing the passenger, who is not wearing a seat-belt to fly forward into the glass partition between the two sections of the cab.
The cabbie is then seen walking around and opening the door, as he apparently drags the yob onto the pavement. As the car drives off, the passenger is seen sitting on the street, nursing his head.

The taxi driver’s mood quickly changes as a less aggressive passenger gets in, responding to his request to go to Euston with: ‘Yeah, alright mate.’
The video has been shared more than 3,500 times on Facebook, where some cite it as an example of why people should not start shouting at cab drivers.
Many said the passenger got what what he deserved after being so abusive to the driver.
Other viewers however branded the driver irresponsible, saying his actions were tantamount to assault and he should lose his licence.
