A 26-year-old Rockland County man is facing multiple charges after he reportedly used derogatory language about the race of a taxi cab driver while displaying a handgun in a dispute about the fare amount, state police said.

Troopers were flagged down at about 1:15 a.m. Sunday on Main Street in New Paltz by a taxi driver who reported that he was threatened by a customer who brandished a firearm inside the cab, according to police.

Troopers then located Andrew M. Plachecki of Congers at the Mobil gas station on Main Street, where a subsequent investigation revealed that Plachecki exited the cab without any further incident, police said.

Plachecki was processed at state police barracks in Highland and charged with reckless endangerment in the second degree and menacing in the second degree, both Class E felonies.

He was arraigned in the Town of Plattekill Court and remanded to Ulster County Jail in lieu of $25,000 cash/$50,000 bond.
