Shocking video has emerged showing a drunk woman attacking an Uber driver with takeout boxes of tacos during an argument inside the hired car. The footage was captured on the vehicle's CCTV by driver Marie Chavez while she worked her weekend shift in Midland, Texas.

The video shows a man and a woman sit in the back seat of Chavez’s car with what appears to be three trays of food. The woman asks Chavez to return to a bar they had just been picked up from in order to collect more passengers, reports MailOnline.

Honestly, I think you need to go back and get them,” the female passenger says. The driver replies, “I need you to exit my vehicle."

Speaking to a person outside the vehicle, she says: “I need this lady to get out of my vehicle please. I’m done, I’m not going to pick them up, I need you guys to exit my vehicle.” She then asks a man who is outside the vehicle to not scream at her after he shouts “bullshit,” and then again asks the woman to leave the vehicle.

“Look at this, what you just did,” an irate Chavez adds. She then asks the male passenger to look at the mess she made in her car.

“Yeah, she threw tacos,” the man adds before offering to clean it up.

Chavez and her husband David released the footage as part of an appeal to find the woman.

Hahahahaha, that was funny. Nearly 3 years ago we have a drunk Taco Bell exec throwing punches at an Uber driver and today we have a drunk taco eating milinneal throwing food at an Uber driver. See, history does repeat itself.

Only if Marie would have been a member of UP.net before becoming an Uber driver she could have been better prepared for the onslaught of the taco barrage. Maybe after reading a few post in our Complaint forum she would have had second thoughts about taking her drunk pax through an all night drive thru.

BREAKING NEWS
Marie Chavez has signed a multimillion dollar deal with Sony allowing her likeness to be used in a video game in which giant tacos from outer space mutate into a drunk human form only to attack unsuspecting Uber drivers.

She wasn't hurt. Look, if the girl attached the driver, different story. She threw styrofoam. Driver just got $150. Boo hoo. I'm not saying the pax was in the right, but they asked why she was ending the ride and the driver failed to offer anything other than stammering "it's my car. Get out." I'd be annoyed if I was the pax, too.

ummm... no. Drivers are under no obligation to drive a passenger they seem unfit or unsafe to drive. This is a clear representation of that by the way the passenger assaulted the driver. To see this any other way is just ludicrous.

You're driving drunks around. Learn to de escalate and expect to deal with bullshit. You aren't driving UN diplomats.

I'm sorry, but these videos where a driver is the victim of a passenger making crude flirtations or something like this... I have very little sympathy. What's next, she sues for being emotionally traumatized???

Sorry, her conflict resolution skills suck and she's going to be okay with a $150 cleaning fee, a funny story, and a viral video.

stop normalizing this trailer park behavior. I've been far drunker than that dumb skank and have never behaved like that.

I hope she called the police to file aggravated assault charges on that woman.
Aggravated assault is a little over the edge. I don't think that a styrofoam container of tacos is viewed as a lethal weapon warranted of a felony. This at the most will be simple battery, a misdemeanor. Maybe pleaded down to criminal mischief with restitution and mandatory anger management classes.

It'll be fine; Uber's got her back.
Her back has Tacos on it.
