A transporting business went wrong with an Uber driver and his passenger after the driver stabbed the passenger multiple times for the weirdest reason.
According to reports, the 23-year-old Uber driver stabbed the passenger for tapping on his car window in Detroit.
It was reported that the Bloomfield Township Police Department responded to a local shopping center in the Detroit area after receiving a 911 call at 1:30 a.m. about two men fighting in the backseat of a 2012 Honda Civic. Upon arrival, police discovered a 49-year-old man with several stab wounds to his face, chest, and back.
According to Detroit Free Press, the victim and his wife had requested an Uber after leaving a holiday party. When the driver, Jacob Matthew Allemon pulled up, the victim reportedly tapped on the window to alert Allemon that he and his wife were entering the car.
Unfortunately, this gesture was misinterpreted by Allemon who felt the man disrespected his vehicle by tapping on it.
Allemon, a Berkley, Michigan resident, then drove about a mile before pulling into the shopping center parking lot, where he ordered the man out of his car.
It was snowing at the moment so the victim asked if him and his wife could stay in the car as they waited for another Uber to arrive. Allemon then reportedly started a fight and stabbed the man multiple times.
The victim was treated at Royal Oak Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Michigan, and was released the next day while the driver has been charged with assault with the intent to do great bodily harm less than murder.
He was arraigned on Sunday, December 18, and was given a $250,000 bond.
Similarly, in February, another Uber driver, Jason Dalton shot and killed six people and injured two others while picking up passengers in Kalamazoo, Michigan. He was later charged with murder and attempted murder.
