An aggressive Uber passenger threatened to call the police and falsely accuse her driver of rape – because he did not have a charger for her phone.
In shocking dashcam video of the altercation, the woman can be heard shouting from the back seat: ‘I’m going to start screaming out the window that you’re raping me, that you raped me.
‘I will punch myself in the face and tell the cops you did it. You wanna play?’
The clip – recorded in the Bronx in New York, US – has provoked a furious backlash against the woman online with commenters branding her ‘stupid’ while praising the ‘patient’ driver.
The row is said to have started because the woman’s phone had run out of battery and the driver did not have a charger for her to use.
He calmly explains to the woman: ‘If I don’t have a charger, politely ask me. I’ll politely tell you, “I’m sorry I don’t have a charger,”.’
But she continues yelling at him to ‘call the cops’ while threatening to spit in his face and ‘violate’ him.
The woman, who has not yet been identified, says in the clip: ‘I will punch myself in the face and tell the cops you did it.
