ATLANTA, Ga. (KABC) — The potential dangers faced by rideshare drivers are starkly illustrated in a video of an attack by a woman who climbed on one driver’s hood and bit him for no apparent reason.

The dramatic video shows a woman climbing on the hood of an Uber vehicle, breaking the windshield wiper and then attacking the driver.


At one point, she opens the door of the Prius and tries to get inside, but the driver grabs her, pulls her out and throws her to the ground.

The woman throws a punch and begins trying to attack the driver. That’s when he puts her in a headlock to try to restrain her, but she then begins biting him on the rib cage.

The driver, Yasser Hadi, told Eyewitness News the woman’s attack left a substantial wound on his rib cage.

“The pain is horrible pain,” he said. “A dog does not bite like this. She’s still biting while I’m pulling for about 30 seconds.”
