Three drunk pax.

During the ride, they are all trying to get a rise out of me - unsuccessfully. The conversation turns to hunting and guns. At the end of the ride, one of the pax asks if I’m carrying. I don’t answer.

The pax directly behind me says, “I have a pistol” and proceeds to dig his two fingers into my neck for 3-4 seconds. (I didn’t know for sure that it was his fingers until I reviewed the dash cam footage).

Incident reported to Uber support. Rider’s account is suspended. Support wants to see the dash cam footage.

I still may call the police. It's at least an assault.

This occurred close to the 0200 hour, and I didn't want to lose money by getting stuck for several hours waiting for (and giving a statement to) the PD.

I also wanted a chance to review the dash cam footage to make sure that I remembered it correctly.
If it ever happens again I'd call police ASAP. Within seconds.

If it had been an actual gun, I'd agree.

For the few seconds that the fingers were in my neck, I didn't know what he was pointing at me - and it was frightening. His demeanor and movements afterward made me 90% sure that it was not a gun.

I doubt that a simple assault report (not in progress, no confirmed weapon) have been a high priority for the PD at/near bar closing.
It might make those punks skedaddle fast.
Put your hands on me and watch them get broke .
There lucky they got you for there driver and not me .
I used to repo detroit i was taught not to put up with shit.
if somebody touches you call the police. What you went through i am sorry .
Point is dont stress it to much these idiots will run into the wrong person sooner or later karma will kick in and they will get what they deserve .
Strongly agree. Those punks will get theirs at some point. "What goes around, comes around".
