Cabbies in dust-up at Fairfield RR depot

Police were called to the eastbound terminal of Fairfield's downtown train station Thursday afternoon to settle a dispute between two cab companies -- one of which had just started doing business at the depot a day earlier.
According to the report, Jeff Serlin, owner of Red Dot taxis, said a driver from Yellow Cab Co. was parked in one of the spots for his company's cars. Serlin told police when he asked the Yellow Cab driver to move, the driver began to yell and threatened to hurt him. The driver, Carlos Lopez, denied making any threat, police said.
Yellow Cab on Wednesday had acquired Fairfield Cab Co., and along with Red Dot, is authorized to provide taxi service in town.
No arrests were made, but police warned both parties to keep the peace.
