Last Friday, Kenny Bachman got blackout drunk in Morgantown, West Virginia, and smartly called an Uber to get him back home. But instead of taking Bachman back to the friend’s place at which he was staying in town, the Uber driver took him all the way back to his permanent residence in Gloucester County, New Jersey, some 300 miles away. The bill $1635.
Bachman didn’t correct the driver because he passed out almost immediately, and is now disputing the charge since he denies instructing the driver to transport him across state lines. "I just woke up," Bachman told NJ Advance Media, "and I'm thinking, 'Why the f**k am I in the car next to some random-a** dude I don't even know?'" To make matters worse, Bachman inadvertently ordered an Uber XL SUV instead of a normal sedan, which effectively doubled his fare.
