A YouTube video went viral after a drunk woman hounded an Uber driver and trashed the car out of nowhere. The woman was identified as Anjali Ramkissoon, a 30-year-old fourth-year neurology resident at the Jackson Health System in Miami, according to the Daily Mail.
In the YouTube post, user Juan Cinco explained the incident: ?We were on the phone with this uber driver while he pulled up to our location. Out of nowhere the girl in the video gets in the backseat of his car and won?t get out. We told the driver it was ok, to just cancel our ride, but he did not want to take her anywhere so he kept telling her get out.? She then went on to harass the driver and wreck the car for a while.
According to the Miami Herald, Ramkissoon was ?removed from all clinical duties? with the Jackson Health System starting an investigation about the incident. ?The outcome of the investigation will determine whether any disciplinary action will be taken, up to and including termination,? the Jackson Health System stated.
Uber then released a statement from WPTV about the incident:
?Uber expects everyone associated with the platform – both drivers and riders – to conduct themselves with a shared level of respect and common courtesy, and all forms of harassment and abuse are not tolerated. We have suspended the rider account of this individual as we investigate the incident.?
Ramkissoon declined to give a statement, regarding the statement, when NBC 6 visited her home in Miami. Fortunately, for Ramkissoon, the Uber driver was ?too good of a person? and agreed to only take a cash settlement, instead of suing her for the countless of charges she could have been liable for. In the YouTube post, Juan Cinco explained that the payment was ?only enough to pay his cellphone bill and maybe his cable bill,? instead of taking legal action.
Neighbours of Ramkissoon on the other hand, were surprised about the incident, insisting that the family is ‘nice’ and that Ramkissoon and her sister were sweet girls. The doctor has been hounded by netizens on social media, with some claiming she was clearly not drunk during the incident, but was obviously ‘high.’
