BENTON HARBOR, Mich. A Benton Township man faces up to life in prison for stealing $8 from a taxi cab driver.

Anthony Yates, 23, robbed an Advance Cab driver at gunpoint in Benton Harbor last February.

No one was hurt, though a shot was fired.

Yates dropped the money as he fled.

He pleaded guilty this week, and will be sentenced March 17.

His criminal record already included a conviction for an un-armed robbery with the same cab company in 2010.
