A woman was arrested on a charge of assault after allegedly biting an Uber driver because she was told to leave the car, according to police in Florida.
St. Petersburg police said that they have arrested 22-year-old Maya Madry, after being accused of biting the Uber driver identified as Mark Rolston, and busting his car’s tires with a large knife.
Madry was charged with aggravated assault, criminal mischief and simple battery. She was booked into jail, and her bail was set at $5,650.
According to the police investigation, Madry called Uber to her home as she was looking for a ride. Rolston came to the suspect’s home, and she entered the car.
An argument broke out, and she was told to leave. Madry then grabbed and scratched Rolston’s arm before biting it. Rolston suffered lacerations, which required medical treatment.
Madry then left the car. She pulled out a knife and hit the driver’s side window. She then used the weapon to flatten one of the car’s tires.
Madry then tried to flatten three other tires, but she did not succeed.
