A Miami doctor has been suspended after a viral YouTube video allegedly showed her getting into a physical altercation with an Uber driver, according to local television station WPLG.
The woman was suspected of being inebriated when the heated confrontation escalated into the fourth-year medical resident hitting the male driver, the station reported.
According to Juan Cinco, who posted cellphone video of the incident to YouTube, the Uber driver had pulled up to the location and the woman “out of nowhere” got in the backseat of the car.
She wouldn’t get out, and Cinco told the driver it was OK to cancel the ride. He wrote in the post accompanying the video that the driver did not want to take the woman anywhere and ordered her out.
After the driver threatened to call police, the woman reached into the front seat, grabbed his keys and began walking away from the vehicle, Cinco wrote. At that point, he began recording the incident.
Video showed the woman punching the man in the face and kicking his shin before he threw her to the ground. She got up, opened the door and sat in the car, prompting the driver to exit the vehicle, according to the footage.
A short time later, the woman started tossing items out of the car.
“I’m a 5-foot girl that weighs 100 pounds. I’m getting really, like, belligerent right now,” she can be heard saying.
The woman continued to throw things out of the vehicle before getting out and appearing to leave the scene. The nearly 5-minute long recording ends at that point.
Police eventually responded to the scene, according to the YouTube video description. However, the Uber driver opted to settle with her and did not press charges, the post stated.
WPLG identified the woman in the video as Anjali Ramkissoon, and reported that she is a resident at Jackson Health System.
Ramkissoon has been placed on administrative leave, according to the TV station.
“Jackson has launched an internal investigation,” spokeswoman Jennifer Piedra told WPLG in a statement. “The outcome of the investigation will determine if any disciplinary action will be taken, up to and including termination.”
Video of the incident had been viewed more than 1.6 million times as of early Friday afternoon since being posted on Jan. 19.
