A 26-year-old taxi passenger - a university student from Denmark - was arrested for assaulting the cab driver, trying to steal his bag, breaking the vehicle's windscreen and for possessing a controlled drug in Yau Ma Tei early yesterday. The Dane, who is studying at a Hong Kong university, appeared to have been drunk when he was arrested, police officers said.
