Stephanie Seymour's Son Arrested for Not Paying $28 Cab Fare: Report
Add cab rides to the list of things money can’t buy.
Harry Brant – whose parents are billionaire businessman Peter Brant and former supermodel Stephanie Seymour – was arrested in Connecticut after he allegedly refused to pay his $27.85 cab fare, the Greenwich Time reports.
According to the newspaper, Harry, 20, was taken into custody on Thursday after he reportedly told the cab driver he didn’t have the money and attempted to flee on foot.
Police were called to the scene where they reportedly found Harry “sweating profusely and pale in color.”
After admitting that he didn’t pay for the ride, Harry allegedly resisted arrest yelling “No! No!” and tried to run from officers when they asked him to place his hands behind his back, the Greenwich Time reports.
“Officers were able to grab ahold of Brant and take him to the ground,” a police report obtained by the newspaper said. “Brant continued to resist officers’ attempts to place him under arrest by tensing his muscles while swinging his arms and kicking his legs. Officers were finally able to place him in handcuffs.”
When officers performed a search, they reportedly discovered a small baggie with a white substance, which later tested positive for narcotics.
Harry was charged with resisting arrest, drug possession and larceny, and was reportedly released from holding after promising to show up for his August 4 court date.
