RENO, NV - Reno police are no longer looking for a the person who was sharing a cab with a man who allegedly skipped out on the fare, then died in a fight with the driver.

Police say late Friday night, 26-year-old Bradley Cheeseman of Reno chose not to pay the cab fair when he was driven to the Wonder Lodge on Lake Street. Instead, he got out and walked away, followed by the cabbie, who called police on a cell phone while he was following Cheeseman. About a block later, police say Cheeseman turned and went toward the driver and started fighting with him. That struggle led the driver to cut Cheeseman in the neck with a knife, and Cheeseman died in a hospital.

Police say they have now spoken with the other person in the cab and had their questions answered about any involvement on his part.

They are still investigating, and the case will be forwarded to the Washoe County District Attorney's office for review. However, police tell us so far, they don't anticipate any charges being filed against the cab driver, whose name hasn't been released.
