Passenger upset over plastic divider attacks Lyft driver.

(ANN) - Florida- Investigators with the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office say a Lyft driver was attacked by one of his passengers, who was questioning the driver over his decision to install a plastic partition in his vehicle.

The incident, which happened Sunday around midnight, was recorded on the driver’s surveillance camera. According to the Sheriff’s Office, the passenger told deputies that the Lyft driver was driving recklessly, saying he grabbed the driver and forced him to pull over.

However, the video recorded on the dash camera shows what deputies said was an intoxicated passenger, identified as Travis Smith, 36. It should be noted the dash camera footage provided by deputies had an incorrect timestamp of July 7, 2018, and incorrect time.

Deputies said Smith’s friend and his friend’s 7-year-old son were both in the backseat. Amid the confrontation, the dome light inside the vehicle comes on.

Deputies said the Lyft driver had minor injuries. Smith was arrested and charged with battery and child abuse. He was released after posting a $7,500 bond.
