A Miami doctor has been placed on administrative leave and faces possible termination after a video surfaced of her attacking an Uber driver who refused to give her a ride.
Anjali Ramkissoon is a fourth-year resident with the Jackson Health System at the University of Miami. On Sunday night, she got into an Uber she did not request. When the driver asked her to leave, she became enraged and belligerent, the video shows.
Ramkissoon is (warning: graphic language) seen on video slapping the male driver in the face and kicking him in the groin after he asks witnesses to call 911.
The Daily Mail reports that the video was taken by Juan Cinco, the man who called for the Uber ride. He said that Ramkissoon came "out of nowhere," climbed into the back seat and wouldn't leave. That's when things escalated into a physical altercation.
Ramkissoon then gets back into the car and litters the driver's belongings out onto the street while cursing at him. She finally gets out and walks away.
In his video description on YouTube, Cinco says Ramkissoon tried kicking the police officer who handcuffed her after she attempted to get away in a taxi. The video has already racked up more than 1 million hits.
The Miami Herald reports that Ramkissoon has now been "removed from all clinical duties" and that her employer has launched an investigation into the incident. Her rider account with Uber has also been suspended.
