Uber taxi driver hauled from court over abuse


In the United States, an Uber taxi driver from Michigan will testify via video from jail to determine whether he’ll stand trial for killing six people.

45-year-old Jason Dalton was hauled out of court for a verbal outburst while witness Tiana Carruthers was on the stand in a preliminary hearing.

Carruthers, who was reportedly shot three times after putting herself between the shooter and some children she was taking care of, began to cry and deputies restrained Dalton as he gestured towards her.

Dalton is charged with shooting eight people and killing six of them within five hours in February this year in between driving customers for the Uber car service in Kalamazoo, Michigan.
