...goes unpunished!

So that cabbie I blogged about the other day? Yeah, he's under arrest.

Turns out the whole thing was an elaborate and stupid hoax to get rid of an unwanted baby. The driver is the father's sister's boyfriend. I don't quite understand a) why they bothered, and b) why they're in trouble, since New York has a safe haven policy whereby babies can be left at hospitals (and, I think, firehouses) with no questions asked. But I guess there's a whole fraud element here too.

Anyway, awesome. I mean, terrible, but... you know what I mean.
