The cab driver, Jason Thomas Slaughter, 22, of Odenton, picked up a man at Nani's Place in the 7900 block of Telegraph Road in Severn about 1: 20 a.m. yesterday, police said.

As they drove south on Telegraph Road near Harvey Avenue, the man put a knife to Slaughter's throat, ordered him to pull over, took his money, forced him out of the cab and then drove off in it, police said.

The officer followed it back into Anne Arundel County and arrested the driver about 2: 05 a.m. when he pulled into a Shell station in the 400 block of Camp Meade Road in Linthicum, police said. The officer, Michael Johnson, searched the vehicle and found a smoking device and crack cocaine, police said.
