BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- A Lyft driver has been shut out of the app after he allegedly threatened a customer with a metal pipe.
Driver Jesse Colon is charged with assault and battery and assault with a dangerous weapon.
He had just dropped off a man and woman in the North End just before 1 a.m. Sunday morning when they called back to say they had left a personal item in Colon's car.
Colon returned, and police say the three got into an argument that turned into a fight.
The couple claimed Colon took out a metal pipe and started waving it around.
Lyft calls the allegations "extremely concerning," and has deactivated Colon's account.
