Uber Driver Charged After Passenger Stabbed

BLOOMFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) – A 23-year-old Uber driver has been charged after a 49-year-old passenger was stabbed in suburban Detroit.

Jacob Allemon was arraigned Sunday on an assault charge.

The victim was stabbed in the chest, back and face about 1:30 a.m. Saturday in a Bloomfield Township parking lot after he and his wife sought a ride home after a party.

Police say the driver may have been angered after his window was tapped on and told the couple to exit the car.

Officers found the men fighting in the rear of a Honda Civic. The victim was treated at a hospital and released.

Allemon faces a Dec. 27 probable cause hearing. Court records do not list a lawyer for Allemon.

The Associated Press left an email Monday seeking comment from the ride-sharing company.
