A Bath taxi driver, Paul Hunter, has been found guilty of dangerous driving following an incident in the city centre last December which led to a city-wide police appeal.
The 57-year-old, from Bradford Park, Bath had denied the charge at Bristol Crown Court on 24th August.
He was given an interim driving disqualification pending sentencing on 24th September.
He was arrested after a man reported to police that Hunter had driven off along James Street West with him being carried on the bonnet of the taxi.
It happened just after 3am on Sunday 14th December.
The man said he was queue-jumped by two others who took the taxi meant for him – so he stood in front of the car in protest.
It then drove off, with him on the bonnet for several hundred yards before the man, aged 29, fell off and suffered bruises to his hip.
Police later issued an appeal for witnesses to the incident, and Hunter was subsequently charged.
