Uber driver films row with a ‘drunk’ London passenger

Footage has emerged showing an Uber driver arguing with a seemingly drunk passenger after she appeared to throw up in his car.

The furious exchange was captured on a camera placed on the dashboard of the cab as it drove through London at night.

It comes after Uber’s future in the capital was thrown into uncertainty last week when TFL denied the firm a licence to operate in the city.

Footage has emerged showing an Uber driver arguing with a seemingly drunk passenger

The footage starts as the driver picks up a female customer holding a glass bottle.

The atmosphere appears friendly with the pair exchanging pleasantries as the journey begins.

The driver asks the passenger to ‘be careful’ with her drink to which she replies: ‘I’m always careful.’

But immediately after this exchange she doubles up in her seat and appears to throw up in the footwell causing the alarmed cabbie to ask: ‘Are you being sick?’  

He tells her that he has to pull over to clean up the car but the woman becomes irate.

‘You need to just drive to where I pay you to drive,’ she tells him.

The driver refuses her repeated orders to drive on and continues to tell her to get out of the car as she begins to raise her voice.

‘You need to do what I am paying you to do, you Uber driver,’ she yells at him.

‘That’s right, I’m an Uber driver,’ he replies. ‘But this is my car. I can’t have my car smell of sick, can I?’

But the woman still refuses to get out of the vehicle causing the driver loses his temper and call her a ‘b****’, which in turn prompts her to begin recording him on her phone.

As the argument reaches its peak the woman says: ‘F*** Uber. I hope you lose your licence.’

The driver then gets out of the car and opens the back door before dragging the woman out of the vehicle.

The video ends after he gets back into the car and drives away while muttering under his breath.

Speaking after the incident, the cab driver, who did not wish to be named, said: ‘I’ve had drunk passengers before but never had anyone this rude and horrible.’
