Uber, the ridesharing service is known to have had a few mishaps over the years, some serious and other not so crime-worthy. This one particular stabbing made headlines however because of the details involved.
This incident took place in Michigan when this Uber driver felt he was disrespected by the passenger, so he decided to take matters into his own hand by stabbing him 5 times.
Police say, the victim was heading home with his wife from a holiday party and so he ordered an Uber which happened to be Jacob Allemon, the man charged with assault and intent to cause bodily harm to the victim by causing multiple wounds to the face, chest and back.
What’s funny though, is that the Uber driver felt disrespected because the passenger knocked on his window according to Bloomfield’s Police report. That’s pretty insane; to stab someone just because they knocked on your window.
“Allemon felt his vehicle was disrespected when the victim tapped on the window,” the release says.“An altercation ensued and during the altercation Allemon stabbed the victim multiple times,” the news release says. “The victim was able to disarm Allemon and restrain him until police arrived.”
