Montreal taxi driver Hassan Kattoua called for an UberX. He asked it to pick him up at the headquarters of the Montreal taxi bureau.
UberX driver Alex Wu arrived, and Kattoua prevented him from driving off. Kattoua alerted the bureau so they could fine the driver and get police to impound the vehicle, in accordance with a local bylaw.
Maybe Kattoua was expecting a thank you from the taxi bureau and its inspectors. Instead, he got an earful from the top inspector. She told him this isn't the right way to do things.
And she threw some serious shade his way after he walked off.
The action also attracted the head of the taxi bureau. Kattoua went to shake his hand, but he refused.
Meanwhile, Alex Wu waited inside his car. "It's not a pleasant experience," he told Radio-Canada.
The inspectors and police arrived to tow Wu's vehicle and give him a ticket.
Wu eventually got his car back, and Uber paid his fines, according to Radio-Canada. "I will go back home now," he said.
