Drunk man accidentally takes $1600 Uber from West Virginia to New Jersey

Drunk man accidentally takes $1600 Uber from West Virginia to New Jersey

"The last thing I remember was being at the bar; then I woke up in the Uber next to an older dude telling me I was an hour out from Jersey".

While taking a taxi, Uber, or even Lyft when you're drunk is generally a good idea, it doesn't prevent every poor decision.

Kenneth Bachman a 22 year old New Jersey man is on the hook for $1635.93 to Uber after having caught the auto sharing outlet from West Virginia to his Garden State home. When they did get back to New Jersey, Bachman went to a CVS in Sewell and got cash back to give him money for tolls on the way back. Next time, he and his friends should probably agree on a designated Uber caller before the shots start pouring. To make matters worse, Bachman ordered a more expensive UberXL, and surge pricing was in effect when he ordered the Uber.

Bachman spread out for sure, passing out shortly after he got into the vehicle.

Bachman challenged the Uber ride.

94 schoolgirls missing after Boko Haram attacked Yobe school hostel
Boko Haram kidnapped almost 300 girls from a school in Chibok in April 2014, setting off global outrage. But the police chief warned that the public should not take this to mean that they were kidnapped.


"Afterwards I had it fully sink in", Bachman said.

Bachman ultimately agreed to pay the fare.

Bachman says he gave the driver five stars.

"I just woke up", Bachman told NJ Advance Media in a phone interview.

Bachman originally complained to Uber, but Uber said there was nothing they could do and that this was in full compliance with Uber's Terms of Service. A failed attempt to dispute the charge - Bachman claims he never put in his home address and the driver had access to his phone - led to a chat with Uber that ended with Bachman paying the full $1,635 fee.

'Basically, I kinda just blacked out.
