The Detroit Free Press reports that 23-year-old Uber driver Jacob Matthew Allemon stabbed a rider five times because he “disrespected” his car.
You know what this means, don’t you? It means we have to crack down on guns.
The driver agreed to give a ride to a couple leaving a holiday party. As the couple entered the vehicle, the husband tapped on the window to alert Allemon that they were getting into his 2012 Honda Civic.
The fact that he tapped the window caused Allemon to feel the man “disrespected” his car, according to the New York Daily News.
So of course he drove the couple to a shopping center parking lot, ordered the husband to get out, started arguing with the man, and then stabbed him five times in the face, back and chest.
Well he did disrespect his car.
The man got the knife away from Allemon and held him down until police arrived.
Allemon was arrested on the scene and later charged with assault with intent to do bodily harm less than murder.
Why less than murder?
The victim was taken to the hospital for treatment and released the next day.
Uber has yet to comment on the attack, according to the Detroit Free Press.
