Ex-Uber driver who stabbed man, shakes his hand in court apology

- A former Uber driver accused of stabbing a passenger five times, faced his victim in an Oakland County court room.

A judge sentenced Jacob Allemon to 90 days behind bars and probation. He has already served 83 in prison.

The 24-year-old was also ordered to serve 200 hours of community service, and undergo anger management classes. He is also banned from using medical marijuana.

Allemon pleaded guilty after picking up the victim and his wife during a snow storm. The man had tapped on Allemon's car window and that is what set him off.
On Monday in court, Allemon apologized to the victim.

"All of this happened because of me," Allemon said. "I could have just kept my cool and did what I did one hundred other times. I am so sorry that you had to be the one that this happened to. The people that this happened to."

With that, both men walked toward each other and shook hands. The judge thanked the victim for his courage in coming forward, and accepting Allemon's apology, something that he says is not seen very often.
