(Scroll down for video) Police are looking to arrest a businessman on a charge of theft after refusing to pay a black taxi driver and yelling racial slurs at him, police in the United Kingdom said.

London police have released a video, which shows the young man dressed in a suit spitting at the taxi driver while climbing out the window.

According to the police investigation, the driver, who wasn’t identified, picked up the passenger in Camberwell. The suspect, who was not identified, began shouting at the driver to stop.

The driver stopped on Kings Road in Chelsea. The driver then asked the man to pay his fare and leave, but the passenger refused, screaming racial slurs.

At some point, the businessman suggested that his girlfriend will pay the fare, but the driver refused. The suspect then opened the window, spat at the driver and kicked the vehicle before running away from the scene.

A security camera in the taxi recorded the entire incident. So far, the suspect has not been arrested.
