A San Mateo man has found out the hard way the difference between a
taxi and a police car.

San Mateo County sheriff’s deputies reported Tuesday that Leslie Paul
Durnell, 30, was drunk when he climbed into an unmarked sheriff’s car at
1:50 a.m. Saturday in the 100 block of Harbor Boulevard and asked to be
taken to an address.

When ordered out, he became verbally abusive and struck an officer who
tried to arrest him, they said.

“What the f — kind of taxi are you,” he was quoted as saying in a
police report.
