  • Woman Uber Passenger Threatens to Falsely Accuse Driver of Rape When Asked to Leave Car

As the row escalates, the woman, who has not been identified, screams: 'Donald Trump is going to send you and your family back.

"The behavior in this video is abusive and completely unacceptable", an Uber spokesperson said in a statement, according to the New York Post.

An Uber passenger in New York City went on a verbal assault like you won't believe, and the driver, he took it all in stride. "I'll politely tell you, 'I'm sorry, I don't have a charger, '" the man said.

First, as the number of passengers and drivers using Uber grows, any individual driver is more likely to be close to a rider. Uber's software is showing a potential customer a longer, more expensive route on their smartphone when asking for a ride, but at the same time, the Uber driver's screen is showing a shorter route so they can pay their driver less money.

"I'm going to start screaming out the window that you're raping me", she then said. "Get the fuck out of my country", she yells. "He just hit me in my face!"

Norway raises threat level after Oslo bomb scare
The youth was not identified, but security service head Benedicte Bjornland said intelligence agencies were aware of him. The "bomb-like device" , which was about 30cm wide, was made safe by police after it was discovered on Saturday night.

The driver says she sees him driving and, "You think I'm nobody". It seems that the entire affair began because she wanted a cord to charge her phone and the driver didn't have one.

The eight-minute clip ends when she finally decides to get out of the vehicle and the driver says to the camera, "This is how Uber drivers go through every f****** day, man. People would disrespect us, talk s*** to us like it's nothing, man".

The updated set of community guidelines urges riders and drivers to respect each other, stating: "Remember that when you use Uber you will meet people who may look different or think differently from you". You're going to jail.You wanna play yourself?

"When a driver accepts a User's request for transportation, the User's final destination is populated into the driver's application and the driver is provided with navigation instructions directing him or her to the best route to the User's destination".

Again, Uber says she's been banned from ever using the service.
