A video allegedly of a
second year fourth year resident at the University of Miami Jackson Health System who attacked an Uber driver in Miami on Sunday night has gone viral.
The video was first posted to YouTube by Juan Cinco. He says the woman, who appears to be drunk, jumped into the back seat of the Uber car that was coming to pick him up and refused to get out. An altercation between the driver and the woman ensued, ending with the woman kicking the Uber driver in the groin and her then trashing the car.
Check it out:
According to Cinco, police eventually arrived and detained the woman until she agreed to a financial settlement of an undisclosed amount:
Once in handcuffs, she then tried kicking some of the police officers on the scene. It was only when they put her in the police car that she started crying, apologizing, and claiming that she would lose her medical license (she claimed to be a neurologist) if she got arrested.
The Uber driver was too good of a person and decided to take a cash settlement instead of pressing charges. In his words, “…she was crying (and) said (she) was sorry for everything.” I don’t want to disclose the amount the driver was paid, but can say he could only use the money to pay his cellphone bill and maybeee his cable bill.
It’s safe to safe this girl got off easy.
She kicked the cops and didn’t get charged? Wow, that is getting “off easy.”
Update. It’s been confirmed that she is a doctor at the University of Miami and she’s been suspended:

A neurology resident at Jackson Health System has been placed on administrative leave after a YouTube video of her hitting and screaming profanities at an Uber driver went viral, a hospital spokeswoman confirmed in a statement.
Anjali Ramkissoon, a fourth-year resident, was “removed from all clinical duties.”
“Jackson has launched an internal investigation,” the statement reads. “The outcome of the investigation will determine whether any disciplinary action will be taken, up to and including termination.”
