An Italian restaurant owner was sentenced to two weeks' jail on Friday for attacking a taxi driver, kicking him in the groin area.

Donnino Rossetti, 44, a Singapore permanent resident, was also ordered to pay $500 compensation to cabby Toh Chee Keong, 36, after admitting to hurting him at Bedok North Street 3 last June.

The court heard that Mr Toh picked up Rossetti along Club Street at about 2am on June 18 last year, and was directed to go to Bedok North Street 3.

The victim asked for directions before driving. About half an hour later, after the victim exited from East Coast Parkway towards Bedok South Avenue, Rossetti created a fuss and questioned the victim over the route taken.
