INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Airport police arrested a man after he was caught operating a taxi without a license.

Police say 51-year-old Abu Kamal was also driving on a suspended license, and that his license had 28 points.

The arresting officer was tipped off when he noticed the car had no exterior markings identifying it as a taxi.

Business cards were located with Kamal’s name for KSB Taxi. A hat was used to cover the hour meter on the taxi he was driving.

It did have a sticker on the passenger side door advertising that credit cards were accepted.

The vehicle was towed and Kamal was taken into custody.
