ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - While picking up a passenger, an Uber driver was bitten and his car was damaged - all without leaving the pick-up location.

Maya Madry was arrested this week by the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office for a June incident involving an Uber driver.

The driver was dispatched to her St. Petersburg home on June 24 at 10:42 a.m. Madry and the driver ended up in a "verbal dispute," according to an arrest affidavit.

The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office says the Uber driver was called to the residence to pick up Madry. When he got there, Madry was not ready to go, so he left. Shortly after she called him and asked him to come back, he did. He told her to not request an Uber unless she is ready. That's when she got angry with him and there was an argument.

The driver asked Madry to leave his vehicle, but before she stepped out, she grabbed, scratched, and bit his arm.

She exited the vehicle and hit the driver's window with a 10-inch long kitchen knife and stabbed a tire. She flattened that tire and attempted to flatten the other three but was unsuccessful.

The victim's injuries were treated. Madry left the scene after the incident. Police arrested her on Sunday, July 10. She was charged with aggravated assault, simple battery and criminal mischief.

Hi Kevin, not cool at all, only thing I can say for a next time , when a passenger makes you wait the five mins, just cancel and move on, go offline until you get out of that area, then go online and pretend you just started your day. Just say that uber automatically cancels after 5, nothing you can do about it. Thank God you're OK, too many nice passengers on the uber platform.

This is what happens when you have prices that are cheaper than mass transit. Ever ridden on a bus in a major city. Yeah, 75% or more of the people on it you wouldn't want to pass you in broad daylight on the sidewalk.

She asked him to come back after he left.

Why did she come back out of the house with a 10 inch kitchen knife? Crazy.
