I drive for Lyft. I picked thus guy up at a strip bar and he was really drunk. When we were driving in a dark remote area he kept coming on to me. O tried to ignore his behavior and threatened to end the ride. I knew that if I did in the area I was in that I could be assaulted or raped ( maybe both). He kept saying that he was going to jump over the seat and " eat my p*ssy" He claimed that I would really like it!! I was disgusted and scared. At the drop- off he was refusing to get out of the vehicle. Once you get someone in your car if you cxl you don't get paid. It doesn't matter what they do or say to you. I reported him and Lyft never followed- up. They don't care about us. Gig economy!!! I hate this job. Low pay and non tippers.

    You should of contacted police through the app. I dont think I would've worried about the fare or cancel fee.  I would've been more worried what the rider was going to do. I would report it to police now. He may of just been drunk and harmless but maybe not. Try to be aware of where police stations are in the areas you drive. My son would've been visiting his house the next morning. Some men are disgusting assholes with no respect. Makes you wonder what kind of people raised him. Did you call Lyft or email them? Dont bother with email they dont respond or they say they ate working on it and never get back to you. Call or go to Hub. I wouldnt let this one go. Sorry you had to deal with this.

    That is bad. Could also be an issue for police if you felt threatened...
