Taxi driver bites Quentin Tarantino on the nipple during fight

Los Angeles - Quentin Tarantino was bitten by a taxi driver on his nipple after the pair got into a fight outside a New York nightclub.

The 50-year-old director was attempting to pay his fare when a fracas broke out between himself and the driver. 

Quentin admits he attacked the man after he made an offensive comment towards his date for the night but the guy retaliated by biting him on his chest.

During an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, he revealed: "I was in the back of this cab and this taxi driver who was a big guy - he was a real jerk. So he was such a jerk I said, 'Pull over to the side of the road and let me get out.' So he's acting all huffy. Say the fare was $4.50 and I gave him a $5 but he was such a jerk I didn't even want to give him 50 cents tip. So I was like, 'Give me my money,' and he was like, 'Fine' and he gives me the two quarters and he refers to my date and says, 'Use it to buy her a new face.'

"So I'm sprinting around the back of the cab because I'm going to attack him. I come over and I hit him so hard that he goes right back in the cab. I start punching him in the face. Now this is all happening in front of a club. So the bouncers grab me and pull me off of him. The guy sees that I'm being held and he attacks me and tries to bite me on my nipple. He didn't hit me ... he sunk his teeth into my chest."

Kept it a secret for a year!

Luckily, the Oscar winner managed to keep the incident a secret from his friends and the public for over a year because he didn't want to get in trouble for the attack. 

He said: "I go, 'Maybe he doesn't know who I am. I can't tell anybody about this. I can't tell my best friend about this.' So for a year I didn't tell anybody about it to see if anybody would know about it and it went away."

He added: "I have been in two fights this year, already. One that I started, one that I didn't. In both cases it was a big deal, it was all over the newspapers and I paid $30 000 each time. That's the price of doing business when you're famous and you punch somebody."
