Cabbie Charged with Sexual Battery

PANAMA CITY BEACH - A cab driver will stand before a judge Tuesday for charges of sexual battery.

Panama City Beach police arrested 22 year old Edgar Lopez on Monday.

Lopez, who is from west Palm Beach, is apparently in Panama City working for the CK Taxi Cab Company for spring break.

Investigators say he picked up a spring breaker on March 10th, took her to a secluded area off Front Beach Road, and raped her.

Now the Bay County Sheriff's Office and the Panama City Beach Police Department are investigating reports from other spring breakers who claim Lopez raped them.
