BLOOMFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. –  A driver using a popular ride-sharing service was arrested over the weekend after police say he stabbed his passenger during an altercation, WJBK reports.

Police say a 49-year-old Beverly Hills man and his wife requested an Uber ride home from a holiday party. Police say when the couple entered their Uber vehicle, the man tapped on the window to alert the driver that they were getting in.

Police say the driver, who has been identified as 23-year-old Jacob Allemon, felt his vehicle was disrespected when the man tapped on the window. Allemon drove the couple about a mile down the road until he pulled into the shopping center plaza at Maple Road and Cranbrook.

He told the couple to get out of his car, a 2012 Honda Civic, and the man asked if they could wait for another Uber due to the snowstorm. The two men got into an altercation, and police say Allemon stabbed the victim several times in the chest, back and face.

Police say the victim was able to disarm Allemon and held him down until police got there.

The victim was taken to the hospital, where he has been treated and released.

Allemon has been charged with Assault with the Intent to do Great Bodily Harm Less than Murder. His bond was set at $250,000.
