My favorite part of this story is that the driver only had $12 in his checking account. Sounds about right, lol

    You really cannot make this up.

    "The pair forced the driver to take them to an ATM, but the driver only had $12 in his checking account and the cash machine would not dispense any money, police said. The pair kept the driver hostage for about an hour before stopping in a Walmart parking lot near Glen Ellyn. The driver was able to run away, and the two men drove away with his car, according to police."

    The media loves making Uber drivers the bad guys, glad to see they are sharing both sides of the story. I have had my fare number of crazy passengers.
