An Uber driver was suspended following claims by a customer that he was receiving oral sex from a prostitute during what he termed as a ‘dangerous and inappropriate’ trip.
The passenger, Aner Manuel, took his complaints to Uber’s Facebook page where he said that his driver was in fact engaging in sexual acts during his ride.
According to Manuel, there was another person in the car seated in the front seat. He however noted that he had not selected Uberpool, the option that allows passengers share a ride.
“As we pulled off the female in the front (who was clearly on drugs) attempted to open the door and could not even sit straight as the vehicle was in motion,” he wrote.
“She then began to grope him and grab him.”
Manuel also shared a video which showed the woman caressing and kissing the driver.
“She then proceeded to perform oral sex,” Manuel said. “This was my last straw. I asked the driver to drop me off.”
Manuel said that after contacting Uber, he received a meager 10 dollar credit.
“They have been extremely bad at answering any messages I’ve sent, and I demand something gets done,” he wrote. “This is not okay!”
“The behaviour of this former driver is appalling and is not tolerated on the Uber app,” said a company spokesman.
“As soon as this situation was reported to us, we immediately removed this driver’s access.”
The incident is apparently under investigation.
