Drunk Man Takes $1600 Uber Trip From West Virginia To New Jersey

That said, the Gloucester County resident conceded he knew he 'just wanted to go home'.

"Afterwards I had it fully sink in", Bachman told the news site.

"I was just like...that's insane why did you agree to take me to New Jersey from West Virginia?" he said.

After his snooze, the bill came rolling in: a grand total of $1,635.93!

The surge pricing then doubled everything but the booking fee, according to NJ.com.

Kenneth adds that he accidentally ordered a more expensive UberXL, and had no choice but to pay the fare.

Kenneth Bachman was having a great time partying at and around the University of West Virginia (WVU) over the weekend. Kenny Bachman told local media he woke up two hours into the 300-mile trip, and continued the journey because he didn't know where he was. He was asked why he didn't just get out of the auto. "Basically, I kind of just blacked out".

On top of that, the Uber driver didn't have money for tolls and was fined at every toll booth. A drunk man's Uber trip ended up costing him $1,600. A majority of that, - almost $700 - came from the distance the Uber driver traveled to take Bachman home, NJ.com reported. He claims the Uber driver had his phone when he woke up and even answered a FaceTime call from a friend while he was asleep.

Bachman complained to Uber, but Uber insisted that the driver had taken him to the destination he requested. Uber also connected with Bachman and resolved the matter, which ended with him agreeing to pay the fare.

Correction: An earlier version of this story misidentified the make and model of the Uber vehicle.
