More to the Story? Ashley Sharpton’s Alleged Assault on a Cab Driver Caught on Tape [Video]

We told you yesterday about how Ashley Sharpton — the daughter of Rev. Al Sharpton — got arrested after allegedly attacking a cab driver.

Footage of the alleged assault has made its way online and it looks like there may have been a little more to the story.

via NYDN:

The tussle went down about 1 a.m. on Saturday near the intersection of W. 48th St. and Ninth Ave. when the driver of the yellow cab pulled over after getting frustrated that Sharpton, 30, and her friends kept giving him different destinations.

Georges Coly, 44, stopped the cab, and Sharpton apparently snatched his keys.

“Give me my key, you have my key,” Coly pleaded with her, according to the video.

He got on his phone and said he was calling the cops. “This lady took my key,” he told the person on the other end.

“I don’t want problem.”

The arguing and bickering went on, and when Coly reached out to Sharpton, she told him, “You put your hands on me? If you put your hands on me there’s going to really be a problem.” 

A man in a plaid shirt and fedora, who was with Sharpton, tried to cool down the squabbling between the famous activist’s daughter and the cabbie.

“Relax, relax,” he repeatedly told the driver, who kept insisting Sharpton had the car keys.

At one point, Sharpton believed the cabbie had laid his hands on the man, and she yelled, “You hit my brother?” and cried “b—h!” before pulling a stiff-arm move and slapping at him.

The driver kept begging the man. “Brother, help me out, please,” he pleaded. “You know what is right.”

Cops caught up to Sharpton a few hours later on W. 46th St. and took her into custody. They gave her a desk appearance ticket and sent her home. She wasn’t charged with assault because the cabbie wasn’t injured, a police source said.
