CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

An 18-year-old suburban man allegedly refused to pay a $175 taxi fare, then threw a cup of bleach into the cab driver's eyes.

Oliver Dickens gave his ID to the driver as collateral when he got into the cab Thursday, but raised a fit when it was time to pay, even damaging and stealing the driver's tablet computer, which Chicago Police found when Dickens was arrested at a Chicago home the next day, Cook County prosecutors said.

The victim, a 34-year-old man from Dundee, suffered burning and irritation of his eyes and skin, but did not require hospitalization.

Dickens has no criminal history.

Dickens was ordered held in lieu of $125,000 bail Saturday.

He is charged with aggravated battery and two misdemeanor counts of criminal damage to property and theft of labor.
