Zurich police launch manhunt for taxi passenger from Milan
Zurich police launched a major hunt yesterday afternoon for a man who had taken a taxi from Milan to Zurich and then fled without paying his fare.
But the taxi driver had already alerted police as he said the man was acting strangely in the cab – not because he skipped out on the fare – around CHF 600.
The man was arrested later near the main train station.
But traffic was severely disrupted as police placed barriers on the roads heading to the airport.
Police say they are now trying to identify the man and the reasons for his behavior.
