The New York City Fire Department is now facing some troubling accusations.

A taxi driver says four drunk firefighters attacked and robbed him on St. Patrick's Day.

The cabbie says the incident happened Thursday night after he picked the men up in Midtown.

The taxi driver says the firefighters became obnoxious, and when he tried to kick them out, they punched him in the face, spit on him and took his jacket, which had $500 in it.
