Scared Houston Woman Encounters Disturbing Ride Sharing Driver
A Houston woman ran inside her home crying and scared after a startling ridesharing encounter.
AN EXTREMELY DISTURBING DRIVER
A Houston woman used the ridesharing app Lyft to order a ride around 9 am Friday. The Lyft car arrived and as the driver waited for the woman to come outside, he began doing bizarre things.
Surveillance video from a neighbor caught the entire scene. The video shows the Lyft driver leaving his car, getting a basketball, and begin shooting hoops in a neighbor's driveway.
Over the next few minutes, the driver's behavior became more erratic. While shooting hoops, the man's shorts fell. Instead of picking them up, he just continued playing, even with his genitals exposed.
CONTINUING THE ALARMING BEHAVIOR
The video also shows the driver urinating on the road and according to Daniel Velasco, the husband of the woman who ordered the Lyft, he also urinated on himself. The driver continued his behavior by going o the back of his car, where he changed into a new pair of shorts.
RUNNING SCARED BACK INSIDE
The woman who ordered the ride was nearby and witnessed everything. She quickly ran inside her home and began sobbing.
Velasco said, "She barges in and is like 'Babe! I'm scared.' She was trembling and crying to herself saying, 'What if I would've jumped into the car with him?'"
Velasco goes outside with his gun and demands the driver leave their home. The driver is heard yelling back, " Would you like to cancel your trip?"
Lyft was contacted and has banned the driver from their platform. However, the driver made damages on his way out. The basketball hoop the driver was playing with was broken, and they would like Lyft to replace it.
"Lyft should make this right," Velasco said.
"The man shouldn't be a driver no more, I mean I don't wish jail or harm on anybody, Just, the man needs help."
