New Jersey native Kenny Bachman told KYW-TV that he didn't quite remember ordering an Uber ride Friday night after a night out drinking with friends in Morgantown, West Virginia.

Sometimes people get drunk and go completely bonkers on their Uber driver, and sometimes, in the case of Kenneth Bachman, you get absolutely trashed and order an Uber XL to drive you 300 miles. The trip cost $1,635.93, and he even gave the driver toll money for the trip back, and rated him five stars.

Kenneth Bachman thought he was taking an Uber to where he was staying, near the West Virginia University campus. Neither Uber nor the driver made a statement as to why the driver had chose to take a passenger on a 300 mile trip.

"I was just like - that's insane". He was asked why he didn't just get out of the vehicle.

The surge pricing then doubled everything but the booking fee, according to He also claims the driver took his phone and used it.

"I guess this kind of embarrassing", he admitted to KYW.

By the time the disoriented Bachman woke up in the Toyota Sienna, he was about 30 minutes away from his hometown in Gloucester County, New Jersey. You go out on the town, have one too many margaritas, and need to call an Uber home. "He was on my phone, without me allowing it".

Because Bachman completed the trip, he had no choice but to pay for the entire cost of the ride.

Uber told that the dispute has been resolved, and that Bachman agreed to pay the fare.

The fare was especially expensive because Bachman ordered an UberXL, and had to cover tolls there and back.
