After attacking an Uber driver, a Florida woman was arrested and charged with aggravated assault and tampering with a witness.
According to the New York Daily News, Michele Stillwell, 55, assaulted the driver, 22-year-old Michael Hassey Jr., from the backseat of the car on April 17 at about 4:45 p.m., biting, choking, and scratching him.
Stilwell was unconscious for the majority of the journey, according to Hassey, but when she awoke and he was still driving, she started assaulting him.
As he tried to pull over, Stilwell allegedly climbed onto the center console and bit his neck so hard that the skin ripped.
During the altercation, Hassey attempted to protect himself and dialed 911, but Stilwell knocked the phone out of his grasp.
“I’ve never been so scared in my entire life, I thought I was going to die,” Hassey told local news station WFLA.
