A taxi driver in Prague charged a foreign tourist over 6,000 crowns for a 14-kilometre ride, Irena Seifertová, a spokesman for the police, told the Czech News Agency. It happened last Saturday.

The woman hailed the taxi at the Old Town Square in the center of Prague. The driver initially demanded 480 euros (around 12,000 crowns) for the ride. An average fare for 14 kilometers would be up to 500 crowns. The tourist filed a criminal complaint against the driver, who is now being investigated by the police.
