May 15, 2021
MORGANTOWN, West Virginia—Vince Kang has been a Uber driver in the area for nearly five years and he thought he’s seen it all. However, he was not prepared for what would happen to him on May 9th around 3:30 a.m. on High Street in front of The Bank.
“I pull in front of The Bank, the Bank Bar on High Street. It was like 3:30 a.m. I am waiting for the ride and I see a fight occur in front of me, a man is thrown onto the curb by the Sports Page in front of me,” Kang explained to WDTV5.
The video of the brawl went viral before it was taken down by YouTube for “violating community standards.”
An Uber spokesperson also released a statement about the incident: “We are alarmed by this senseless violence. We have been in touch with the driver and stand ready to assist local law enforcement with their investigation.”
