A “WaiGuoRen” or Foreigner was beat to the floor Sunday Night near Shida Nightmarket. (video below)
It appeared the foreigner was drunk and had gotten into a confrontation with a middle aged taxi driver. The taxi driver seemed intimidated by the foreigner and started pushing him away. Two men decided to join in an attempt to defend the driver. Strangely enough, one of the strangers pulled out what appeared to be a spatula and started hitting the foreigner.
The police quickly arrived and halted the incident. In a police statement, the foreigner was identified as a Canadian who was not good with Mandarin and was intoxicated. The Canadian man’s wife also arrived on scene and convinced him to apologize. The couple paid the taxi driver NTD 1,000 to resolve the conflict.
