An Uber driver in MI has been arrested for allegedly stabbing a passenger multiple times Saturday because he felt the man "disrespected" his auto when he tapped on the window, PEOPLE confirms.
A fight then broke out in the backseat of the vehicle between Allemon and the victim.
Jacob Matthew Allemon, 23, of Berkley, was arraigned Sunday on an assault charge.
The 49-year-old victim said he had ordered an Uber ride to drive him and his wife home from a holiday party.
According to police, Allemon was upset when the man tapped his vehicle window to alert him he and his wife were entering the auto. According to the site, Allemon felt the man "disrespected" his vehicle by tapping on it. He suffered multiple stab wounds to his chest, back and face, police said.
He drove the couple about a mile before pulling into a shopping center parking lot and ordering them out of the vehicle, the newspaper reported. The victim was taken to the hospital, where he has been treated and released. When the victim asked if he and his wife could wait for another Uber due to the snowstorm, a fight began.

There is not a single person who needs to leave", Hamilton said about the swap of six mechanics, as quoted by the Daily Mail.
An Uber official tells fox2detroit.com that Allemon has been banned from driving for the company.
"What has been described is appalling", an Uber spokesperson said in a statement.
Less than 24 hours later, a driver had just picked up a fare in Aventura, Florida when he was cut off by a Dodge Caravan. The driver reached for his own gun, and shot and killed the robber. In many cases, these drivers had extensive criminal records, and in some, they didn't even have active drivers licenses.
And earlier this year, Jason Brian Dalton, another Michigan Uber driver, went on a shooting spree that left six dead and two critically injured.
There has been no indication from Uber as to whether or not these incidents will prompt them to tighten security screenings of its drivers.
