    He ordered a car for his friend , who was super high first at all he order to the wrong house
    Location after the time expired he called , ok np was just a few houses up.
    During the ride he started yelling on me to make turns i said do not worry i am taking you there.
    He said i dont care about navigation **** you i told him to get out.
    Then suddently comes 3 more of his friends and calling me racist one of them assaulted on me fron outside the car i could drive off.
    I called the cops but they took to long while asking tons of questions i lost them while following them on the streets with my car.
    After that lyft make sure only to bring up the pssenger false racism accusation and didn’t give a damnor believed what happened to me. Which could’ve been much much worse. So be careful guys you are definitely by your own police and even less lyft will help you out. So do not hesitate ever to hit them back if that happens to you. Our safety before passengers always.

    If you have footage, then a lawyer would probably like to see it..........especially if Lyft doesn't.

    Your issue started when you decided to assert your dominance over his turn by turn direction. Who cares if they want to direct you? GPS gives you the shortest/fastest way there, if he wants to take the scenic route, who cares? You'll get a few pennies more and you could have avoided all this confrontation.

    That is not the point, he was yelling on me from the front seat multiple times , for everything there is a limit , so for you that is a point for being false accused and take **** all the way? I mostly do not mind about anything but...

    3 weeks ago i had a drunk Marine try to start a fight with me, I'm prior Army. I laughed it off, took him and his wife home safely, then rewarded with a $10 tip. Thats how I handle it. I dont let idiots change my mood nor do I drop down to their level, they'll beat me with experience. If They lay hands on me or damage my vehicle, game on.

    Words?

    Sticks and stones my friend...

    ...then I remind myself how miserable of a life they must live if thats how they act in public. Ive got thick skin and dont rattle easily.

    Gotcha man, that is good that could’ve been easily solved if my stun gun hasn’t failed at his face lolololol

    Just because she was doing her job and asking questions does not mean she didn’t have the call in for dispatch. Chances are, the precinct you were in was busy.

    You’re going to call me “mr argue” when you got into this situation because you argued with a pax. Lol. I guess you just can’t handle having an opinion that even slightly challenges yours.
