Uber passenger says driver nearly abducted her

  • A University of Denver professor took to her Twitter account Tuesday to recount her nightmarish experience with an Uber driver
  • According to Nancy Leong, the Uber driver drove off-course, told her he was taking her to a hotel, and refused to unlock the doors

A University of Denver professor took to her Twitter account Tuesday; saying she was nearly abducted by an Uber driver.

But according to KDVR, she has yet to file a police report.

Nancy Leong’s, a law professor at the University of Denver,  said that the Uber driver drove off-course, told her he was taking her to a hotel, and refused to unlock the doors.

“Hey @Uber your driver was taking me to the airport. He said he was going to ‘take me to a hotel’ and got off the highway. We got to a stop light. I started yelling ‘let me out of the f—ing car’ and he wouldn’t unlock the doors,” she tweeted.

Leong appears to have deleted her Twitter account just hours after her story began to spread.

Uber said that it has reached out to both Leong and the driver as part of the investigation.

A spokesperson for the University of Denver told Business Insider that Leong is not currently interested in speaking to the press about her experience.
