Charlotte Uber rider complains of … spider bites?

Posted By on Wed, Jul 30, 2014 at 11:44 AM

Not only was an Uber driver 30 minutes late to his destination, but somehow during the ride, his customer got attacked by spiders.

The Charlotte-area rider says he discovered the bites after the trip. He details his greivances - which include pictures - in the first official complaint filed with the state's attorney general against the company.

As the Triangle Business Journal reports, despite the mega-eww factor of this complaint, it's benign compared to those that AGs around the country have received. "Attorneys general in some states, including New York, launched investigations into the legality of the service itself. And, in Virginia, taxi drivers have asked Attorney General Mark Herring to shut the service down."

Lyft, another ride-share program, has yet to receive any complaints in North Carolina.
