2 Chicago men sue taxi company over brief kiss
First Published Aug 27 2014 11:29 am • Last Updated Aug 27 2014 01:26 pm

Chicago • Two Chicago men sued a taxi company this week, alleging a driver tried to kick them out of his cab because they shared a short kiss.

Matthew McCrea and Steven White filed the lawsuit against Sun Taxi. They claim the driver violated the Illinois Human Rights Act and are seeking an undisclosed amount in damages.

The lawsuit contends McCrea gave White, his boyfriend, a one-second-long kiss during a ride from the airport, the Chicago Sun-Times (http://bit.ly/1C2r0BR ) reported. The men said the driver then pulled over on the expressway and ordered them out. When they refused, the driver merged back onto the expressway, "driving recklessly, swerving into traffic," according to the lawsuit.

The driver called 311 and was transferred to 911. When police arrived, the driver and told an officer McCrea and White were "making sex" in the cab, the lawsuit filed Monday said.

The driver, who is not named in the lawsuit, previously told the Sun-Times he pulled the car over to ask the couple to stop kissing, but he wasn’t kicking them out of the cab.

"I told them to stop," he said. "It was raining. I couldn’t drive with something like that. I have to drive safely because it’s raining."

A representative of Sun Taxi declined to comment Wednesday.
