This is the mad PRC professor who held our taxi driver hostage after tipping him $1. He demanded the taxi driver step out of his vehicle to show respect. Why is Singapore paying top dollar to invite such lunatics to teach in Singapore? Foreign talent gone wrong?

Police called in after passenger gives cabby $1 tip — then tells him to ‘step out and show respect’
Local gossip website STOMP reported on this strange incident:
Stomper Cabby was left with no choice but to call the police after a dispute with a passenger yesterday (June 28).
He had picked up the man at the airport and dropped him off at the LKY School of Public Policy in Bukit Timah.
According to the Stomper, the total fare amounted to $21 and the passenger gave him $100.
When the cabby wanted to give the passenger his change of $79, the latter only took $78 and left the remaining $1 as a tip.
However, things took a strange turn after that.
Said the Stomper in a phone interview:
“I don’t know what happened but the passenger suddenly asked me to step out and show some respect.
“He said that he is a professor and has been in Singapore for eight years, and that this was a worldwide practice.
“I said I would return him his $1, and he said he would take it back but still insisted that I step out.
“He refused to exit my taxi and even called my company to complain.”
