Ride share driver, Albert Boakye, 46, was arrested late last night and is now charged with misdemeanor assault for allegedly physically removing a female passenger, Clare Dunn, from his vehicle on Highway 70 South on June 26 after the two reportedly argued over a missed turn.
According to Dunn, after Boakye missed the turn, he became very angry and stopped on the side of the road where he forcibly removed her from the vehicle and then grabbed her by the neck before throwing her to the ground. She sustained bruises and lacerations to her head. The driver fled the scene.
Dunn provided a photo of Boakye from her rideshare app and detectives were able to positively identify him as the suspect.
Boakye is free on $1,000 bond.
