Houston Police arrest man accused of threatening cab driver
Harris County Sheriff's deputies arrested Terry Bishop of Houston after he allegedly threatened a cab driver who gave him a ride home and barricaded himself in his home off Northwest Freeway, according to khou.com.
At 2:30 a.m. Sunday, July 22, deputies responded to a 911 call of a 52-year-old man who threatened a taxi driver, according to a Harris County Sheriff’s Office press release.
The cab driver dropped off Bishop at Bishop's house. After getting out of the cab, Bishop reached into his pocket as if to pay the driver but allegedly produced a knife and threatened the driver, the press release stated. The driver left, and Bishop went into his home and had a confrontation with relatives, who left the home and left Bishop alone in the house.
Bishop was supposedly highly intoxicated. Deputies ordered him to leave his home after they arrived, but Bishop refused and discharged a weapon.
The deputies then established a perimeter around the home, and the Harris County Sheriff's High Risk Operations Unit deployed.
Unit members set up talks with Bishop, and he was taken into custody without incident.
Charges are pending, according to the press release.
