Uber says it is working with the Boston Police Department after one of the company's rideshare drivers allegedly dragged a woman with a vehicle in South Boston.
Boston police said they responded to the incident, which happened in the area of 930 East 4th St. just before 3 a.m. Sunday.
Officers were met by a woman at the scene who told them that she had left her phone in an Uber earlier in the night and had arranged for the driver, a man, to deliver it to her at the East 4th Street location.
The woman then told police that the driver demanded a cash payment for delivering the phone, but she did not have any cash on her. A verbal argument ensued, and when the woman reached inside the vehicle to retrieve her phone, the driver put the vehicle in gear and accelerated toward P Street as she was still holding onto the vehicle.
Ed Booth, a rideshare driver who works for Lyft, was picking up passengers in the area where the incident occurred and captured it on camera.
