Nov. 13 (UPI) -- A California cabbie found out that didgeridoos can be used for something other than making music when a fare dispute allegedly turned violent Sunday night.

According to police, a cab driver picked up a man and a woman from Mission Valley on Sunday evening and took them to house in Chula Vista about 20 minutes away. The man and woman fell asleep during the ride but woke up once they reached their destination.

Police Lt. Phil Collum said that 31-year-old Joaquin Gonzalez then got into a dispute with the cabbie about the fare.

Gonzalez went inside the house and returned with a didgeridoo that he proceeded to threaten the cabbie with. The driver took off but Gonzalez chased after the car and whacked it in several places, leaving dents.

Police responded to calls about a man chasing a cab with a bat and ended up arresting Gonzalez on felony vandalism charges.

Didgeridoos are usually made of wood and can measure anywhere from three to 10 feet long.
