GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – A Grand Rapids man has been arraigned on charges of Assault and Battery and Ethnic Intimidation after an incident earlier in November.

Jacob Holtzlander, 23, turned himself in to Grand Rapids police Thursday, according to GRPD.  His bond has been set at $5,000.

Holtzlander was the passenger in a cab on November 12 when he allegedly hit the cab driver and yelled racial slurs at the man.  Four other women were also in the cab and Holtzlander apparently had wanted to be dropped off at a different location.  When the driver told Holtzlander of an increase in price for the extra drop-off, he allegedly hit the driver.
