Wow!!! A perfect example of what’s wrong with our country today. You, Ms. Ramkissoon, are a self-centered spoiled brat that has obviously never been held accountable for any of wrong doing.
During her interview on Wednesday Anjali Ramkissoon blamed the whole thing on having ‘the worst night of her life’ She told that day her father had been taken to the hospital and right before she snapped at the driver, she and her boyfriend had broken up.
As explained by the YouTube user who posted the video, the footage starts when Anjali Ramkissoon gets inside the car. By this point she had already scared off the real passenger for which the Uber driver had arrived to that location. Apparently Anjali Ramkissoon got upset when the driver told her he wont take her anywhere. She takes his car keys and start walking.
The Uber driver appears to have control of Ramkissoon early in the video, holding her wrists in an attempt to restrain her. She attempts to free herself by kneeing the driver in the groin, resulting in the driver shoving Ramkissoon to the ground and making a break for his car.
When he gets to his car, Ramkissoon gets in on the passenger side and begins to berate the driver.
The driver then exist the car and she begins throwing his belongings outside the car.
According to witnesses Anjali Ramkissoon offers money to the driver after police arrived. The driver didn’t press any charges. Uber however, suspended her account.
