A Guelph man allegedly threw a water bottle through the front window of a home in a dispute over how much he should be paid for giving two strangers a ride.
Guelph Police say it all started around 2:30 a.m. Tuesday, when two women leaving a restaurant accepted a ride “from a man who was posing as an Uber driver.”
When the women arrived at their destination on Victoria Road, the driver allegedly demanded more money than he had originally agreed on.
At that point, police say, the upset driver grabbed a water bottle and threw it through a window.
Police were called, and caught up with the man soon after.
A 35-year-old Guelph man is charged with mischief and picking up passengers for compensation without proper authority.
