Oh no he "didgeri-didn't."

A Southern California man was arrested after police said he attacked a cab with the wooden Australian instrument known as a didgeridoo in an argument over the fare, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.

The man and a woman were picked up in Chula Vista on Sunday night and fell asleep during their 20-minute cab ride home.

The cabbie asked them for the fare and an argument broke out.

The man went into the house and came back out with the didgeridoo, threatening the cabbie with it, the Union-Tribune reported.

The cabbie sped off, but the man chased after him and hit the cab several times with the instrument.

Police arrested him on suspicion of felony vandalism.
