CORNWALL – A Cornwall cabbie got a face full of pepper spray after being caught in the crossfire of a fighting couple.

Cornwall police say a 27-year-old man was arguing with his girlfriend on Saturday.

As she went to get into a taxi outside their Bedford Street home, that’s when police say the man blasted her with pepper spray and also got the taxi driver as well.

The man was arrested and charged with two counts of assault with a weapon and two counts of administering a noxious substance.

The cab driver had to be treated by paramedics but was expected to be okay.
