An Uber driver in New Jersey has been fired after he locked himself in the backseat with a drunken female passenger and started fondling himself. "The driver has been permanently removed from the Uber platform for his inappropriate behavior, and we have reached out to the rider to apologize for such an uncomfortable experience," an Uber spokesperson said.
The entire incident, which occurred about two weeks ago, was recorded by the passenger, and put onto Facebook by a friend shortly after. The video uploader wrote on the original post, "Creepy Uber Driver Alert: Ewww my friend just shared this on her page from a Uber trip she had tonight in Avalon, NJ tonight. The driver got in the backseat with her and started fondling himself." Watch the very uncomfortable clip below.
You can hear the man say at one point, "I love your body. My god, I love your body. Your body is beautiful." Toward the end of the clip as he's getting out, he says to her, "Have a good night. Call me alright?"
The driver was a partner on the UberBLACK platform and commercially licensed through the Philadelphia Parking Authority. NJ Advance adds that the trip started in Sea Isle City, NJ and ended in Avalon, NJ. It's unclear if the woman contacted police.
