(Scroll down for video) Many people take great pride in their vehicle.
However, one Uber driver took things to a whole new level as he stabbed his passenger because he felt the customer did not respect his car.
The Uber driver in Michigan, stabbed his passenger five times on Saturday, for “disrespecting his car,” by knocking on the window, police said.
23-year-old Jacob Matthew Allemon attacked his passenger in Bloomfield Township. The passenger was with his wife on the way home from a party.
According to police, when Allemon arrived, the 49-year-old male passenger of Beverly Hills, knocked on the window to let the driver know that he was getting into the car.
This angered Allemon. He drove the couple for only a mile and ordered them to get out of his car. The passenger asked if they could wait until another Uber driver arrived, as it was snowing outside.
Allemon became angry and a fight broke out. He stabbed the passenger five times before the victim was able to disarmed him, police said.
The passenger was treated and released from a hospital the following day.
Allemon was arrested and charged with assault. He is being held at the Oakland County Jail, on $250,000 bond.
Uber’s spokeswoman Kayla Whaling said that Allemon was banned from working for the company.
