Iraq war veteran Eric Williams was the victim of homophobia July 4th when a Tacoma, Washington, driver allegedly kicked him and his boyfriend out of a cab for sharing a kiss.

Speaking to Q13FOX.com, Williams, who completed two tours in Iraq and was the subject of a Don’t Ask Don’t Tell investigation, said that when the driver asked why they were kissing, he replied “that’s my boyfriend, I’m gay,” at which point the driver pulled off the road and refused to continue the fare.

While Williams says it was just an innocent kiss, the cab driver claims something more intimate was going on and he was offended.

Yellow Cab spokesman Anthony Nix said that the incident is under investigation. If video footage corroborates Williams’s version of events, the driver will be fired.
