HONOLULU (KHNL) - An argument over $2 is what, investigators say, led an Oahu cab driver to try to run over his passenger.

Guillermo Fernandez is charged with attempted murder. He's set to make his first court appearance Thursday.

The 51-year-old is accused of driving his SUV into 29-year-old Ryan Foth on Friday. The victim told investigators he handed the driver a $10 bill for his $7 ride, and was only given $1 change.

After words were exchanged, police say the taxi hit Foth multiple times, sending him to the hospital in serious condition.

Fernandez is free after posting $50,000 bail.
