A man who rode in an Uber in Maryland is facing charges after allegedly physically and verbally abusing the driver.
Just before 4:00 PM on April 21, an Uber driver in a 2012 Hyundai Accent picked up a male passenger. The man wanted a ride to Baltimore City, but he asked the driver to make a few stops before they headed for the destination.
The man sat in the front passenger seat for the ride, and he reportedly began smoking what was believed to be narcotics. He also allegedly struck the driver in the head several times while they were on the road.
