There is good news for a cab driver whose taxi was destroyed by unruly revelers following the Lakers NBA championship win.

AEG, which owns Staples Center, has offered the cab driver $10,000 to help with expenses. Others also have also come forward with donations.

Meantime the Los Angeles Fire Department hopes that footage of the cab burning incident will help them catch the people who destroyed the taxi.

The video shows people jumping on the cab and setting it on fire.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to call LAFD's Arson and Counter-Terrorism unit at (213) 485-6095.
