He says he gave the driver five stars and even gave the driver cash to cover the cost of tolls on the way home.

It all kicked off when Bachman, a New Jersey native, found himself hanging out with his pals near West Virginia University's campus.

But instead of being driven to the nearby place he's staying that night, he gets taken to his actual home more than 300 miles away in Gloucester County, N.J.

"Once the ride ended and I saw how much it was then I was like "Alright, this is insane, that's just crazy". He got in the vehicle, and fell asleep.

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to meet Sisi
Before that, however, he visited Egypt four times (three times in 2015 and once in 2016) after Sisi assumed the presidency in mid-2014.

"Afterwards I had it fully sink in", Bachman said.

"The dude who was Ubering me home picked up my phone when I was asleep and answered the Facetime call and said 'Nah, dude". "He was on my phone, without me allowing it".

On top of the Uber fee, the driver didn't have money for tolls, so he was fined at every tollbooth.

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