Have you ever ordered a Lyft Line or Uber Pool before? In most major cities, the ride-share services offer these, where you have the option of choosing a shared ride, for a reduced price, however you may have to stop along the way to pick up or drop off other passengers.

Unfortunately, in this story, a passenger became very angry that she wasn’t getting dropped off first, that she beat up the other rider in the car.

Per the Miami Herald,

A shared Lyft ride left Jose Gonzalez’s forehead pierced by a woman’s high-heel shoe and his lip and face bloodied and bruised, after he said he was beaten by an irate passenger.

Gonzalez told WPLG Local 10 that he’d hailed Lyft, a ride-sharing company, from outside Twist, the popular South Beach gay bar on Washington Avenue early Thursday morning to get a ride to his home in North Miami Beach. He opted for a discounted pool ride and slid into the front seat. A woman passenger was already sitting in the back, he said.

City of Miami Beach spokeswoman Melissa Berthier told the Miami Herald that the incident happened around 4 a.m. Thursday and that Miami Beach police are investigating the attack. 

The driver immediately kicked out this passenger from the car, and brought the victim home.

This is truly a horrible story to hear, and our thoughts are with the attacked victim.
