Man Charged After Farting In Uber

A British man is facing an assault charge after passing gas inside of an Uber. Prosecutors say 35-year-old James Mallett was on the way to a nightclub with three others when he farted in the vehicle. Driver Aleksander Bonchev told the man to get out, but Mallett reportedly responded by hitting him in the head. Bonchev knocked the man to the ground before he got up and left. Police say officers later encountered an intoxicated Mallett, who was abusive towards police. Due to the ordeal, he is expected to pay a fine and serve 120 hours of community service.
