A California Lyft rider became irate after her driver requested that she wear a face mask. The anger intensified during the ride-sharing drive and the testy situation escalated to the point the rider attacked the Lyft driver and even spat at him.
Lyft driver Pedro Cubias picked up a passenger earlier this month in Los Angeles. Tensions rose once the driver asked the passenger to wear a face mask. Since June 10, the ride-sharing company's official policy has required riders and drivers to wear face coverings.
"He said he took her to the destination that it said on the app," Stephanie Cubias, the driver's wife, told KCAL-TV. "She was already mad because of the mask, so she got more mad because apparently the location he took her wasn't the one that she had requested, but when he looked at the app, that was the location."
Once the rider became belligerent because she was asked to wear a mask, Cubias turned on a camera inside the car to record the passenger's actions. The passenger, who was picked up in Torrance, was beyond mad once she was brought to the alleged wrong location.
She physically attacked the driver multiple times. Video shows the woman punch Cubias in his face twice and smack him when he retrieved a charger from the back seat.
