DENVER — A man accused of attacking a taxi driver and fleeing in his vehicle has been formally charged.

Denver District Attorney Mitch Morrissey charged Curt Glinton, 23, with four counts of attempted first-degree murder, two counts first-degree assault, one count robbery, one count leaving the scene of an accident and one count vehicular assault.

On March 16, Glinton allegedly assaulted a taxi driver and a passerby in the area of 44th Avenue and Tejon Street following a heated argument regarding the cab fare, according to a press release from the DA’s office.

The charges also accused Glinton of getting into the taxi and running over the passerby, who sustained serious injuries, before he fled the scene in the cab.

Glinton was arrested shortly after the incident, said the DA’s office.

He has been released from police custody on a $10,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in a Denver courtroom on Thursday for his second advisement.
