MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Jackson Health System announced on Friday they are moving forward with the termination of a Miami doctor caught on camera attacking an Uber driver in the heart of Brickell.
Anjali Ramkissoon, the woman at the center of the viral video, is entitled to an appeal, Jackson Health said in a statement.
The fourth-year neurology resident had been placed on administrative leave shortly after video of the incident went viral on the web.
The incident took place in the early morning hours of Sunday, January 17th.
The video was uploaded to YouTube by a poster named Juan Cinco who said he had called for an Uber driver but when the driver arrived, “out of nowhere the girl in the video gets in the backseat of his car and won’t get out. We told the driver it was OK, to just cancel our ride, but he did not want to take her anywhere so he kept telling her to get out.”
Juan Cinco recorded the confrontation.
In the video, Ramkissoon can be seen attempting to hit the driver and knees him in the groin. He pushes her off and she falls to the ground then comes back for more, cursing at him and then taking out her feelings on his belongings. She’s seen in the video throwing out various items from his car, including a master lock which she hurls at him, scissors, and a large amount of Uber fliers, and his iPhone.
At one point, the driver appears to be speaking to someone on the phone, presumably to police.
Miami police said they responded to a call of a disturbance, but did not arrest her. Juan Cinco wrote online that the driver did not want to press charges, and that Ramkissoon gave him a small amount of money as an apology.
