Uber driver accused in Philly beatdown

A New Jersey man apparently got more than a ride when he summoned an Uber late last month.

Joseph Fusco alleges the trip, which began in Philadelphia's University City, ended in a beatdown when he asked to be taken to his home in nearby Cherry Hill. Fusco, 30, is director of public safety at Cabrini University.

The Uber driver was adamant about not crossing the Ben Franklin Bridge, NBC-10 reports, and Fusco allegedly was dragged out of the car by the Uber driver and beaten. Fusco said he was left by the side of the road, bruised, bloody and missing some teeth.

Fusco said in a lawsuit that he was still charged for the 28-minute ride. However, Fusco's lawyer later told NBC-10 he eventually got a refund.
