It was a wild and crazy Sunday morning for one Nashville Uber driver. Just before 3AM, Mynor Chox reports that he was punched in the face and his door was kicked in while driving for Uber during one of Nashville’s busiest festival weekends.
According to a police report, Dustin Killeen, a middle Tennessee realtor, got into the Uber vehicle and began to pull on the steering wheel, at which point the driver, Mynor Chox, told him he had to get out. In response, Chox says that Dustin Killeen punched him in the face/mouth with a closed fist.
Killeen then got out of the vehicle and allegedly kicked the front passenger door, causing a large dent, which was estimated at approximately $800 in damage. When police arrived, Killeen had already took off walking, but was seen a short time later walking back toward the police and the victim, and identified by the victim.
Dustin Killeen initially stated to MNPD that he didn’t know the victim or what was going on, but once under Miranda, he stated that he did ask the victim for a ride, which was refused, and he walked off. A short time later, Killeen changed his story to the police a third time, stating that he asked, was refused, but was sitting in the vehicle before he got out and walked off, but denied assaulting the victim or denting the door by kicking it. The driver had visible injuries from being punched.
Police say that Killeen smelled of alcohol, was unsteady on his feet, had slurred speech, and watery eyes. He was deemed to be a danger to himself and/or others. He was charged with assault, public intoxication, and vandalism. He posted a $3600 bond via 1 Hour Bonding, and will appear in court on 06/29/2018.
