CHICAGO (STMW) – A Chicago cabbie chatted up a west suburban woman at a Wrigleyville bar’s Halloween party — then secretly used her credit card to settle a $775 tab, prosecutors allege.

Taxi Driver Albert Williams, 30, is charged with unlawful use of a credit card after he met the 21-year-old Bloomingdale woman at the Rockwood Place bar Friday night, Assistant Cook County State’s Attorney Sam Cervera said.

The woman had not given Williams permission to use her card.

A bartender identified Williams as the man who used the woman’s card, according to a police report.

Judge James Brown ordered Williams, who has prior convictions for fraud and lives on the 4600 block of North Malden, held on bail of $90,000.
