(KMOV) – A man from St. Charles will face only one day in jail after he punched a cabbie in order to get out of paying his fare.

Police say Dionne Gatling, 20, punched the cabbie so he wouldn’t have to pay the $48 dollar fare. Gatling pleaded guilty to theft and assault for the incident that happened in April.

Gatling will be on probation for two years and will be required to complete community service.
