Apparently Eugene may have had a nasty blowup with a cab driver that led to assault.
According to Radar Online, he allegedly even tried to ride off in the cab after the fallout and had to be pulled over by police.

Radar can exclusively report that the 40-year-old truck dealer was arrested and charged with criminal damage to property in the second degree, theft by taking, simply battery and obstruction of an officer after he beat up a cab driver and took off in his taxi.
According to Atlanta’s DeKalb County Superior Court documents obtained by Radar, Casciaro first caused more than $500 worth of damage inside the vehicle by “pulling and punching objects within reach” during the July 12, 2009 incident.
Then, Moore’s boyfriend began assaulting the victim.
“The accused person…did intentionally make physical contact of an insulting or provoking nature….by striking him,” the District Attorney wrote.
The chaos continued when Casciaro “unlawfully” stole the man’s taxi and drove off around the Atlanta area.
When a police officer attempted to pull him over, the crazed Casciaro broke the law again by “refusing to bring a vehicle to a stop,” the D.A. said.
He was eventually taken into custody and remained in jail for two days.
Casciaro was indicted on all four charges in February 2011, but eventually agreed to a plea deal nine months later, admitting guilt to criminal damage to property, simply battery and obstruction of an officer.
Instead of theft by taking, his fourth count was reduced to criminal trespassing.
Radar Online claims Eugene was ordered to serve 24 months on probation, and complete 100 hours of community service.
He also allegedly had to pay a $500 fine.
