Ashley Sharpton is in huge trouble after she attacked a Midtown cab driver and then ran away from the scene.
Al Sharpton is really raising his children well. Ashley was just celebrating her birthday when she and two other cab passengers couldn’t figure out where their destination. The cab driver stopped the vehicle until they told him where they wanted to go.
Ashley then ripped the car keys from the ignition and left the cab. The cab driver asked for his keys back but she threw them and then jumped into the cabbie’s face.

Ashley Sharpton, 30, is facing charges of petty larceny and criminal possession of stolen property after she grabbed the keys from a cabbie on W. 48th and Ninth Ave., then shoved and punched the cab driver when he demanded them back.
The clash began just before 1 a.m. on W. 48th St. and Ninth Ave. when Sharpton and three others jumped into a cab, but gave the cab driver different destinations.
The cab driver stopped his car until his passengers could figure out where they were going when Sharpton, who was sitting in the front seat, took the keys from the ignition.
She jumped out of the car and threw the keys – which the cabbie didn’t see. The cab driver approached her, demanding his keys back, when she began shoving him.
Sharpton then ran off. Cops caught up with her about two hours later on W. 46th St. and took her into custody.
She was given a desk appearance ticket and sent home.
You do remember Ashley right? She is the same Sharpton who filed a fake lawsuit against the City for a bad ankle and was caught mountain climbing around the same time?
Maybe intoxication played a role in this situation? Different destinations aren’t unusual but it seems, in this case, all were headed to the same place but couldn’t decide where that would be.
So surprised since her father is such a pillar of the community (sarcasm). She will cry the cabbie was racist and deserved to be stolen from.
