PETALING JAYA: A former national futsal player unintentionally “punched” her Grab car driver in the eye after he dropped her and her mother off at the wrong location.

The driver picked up the 22-year-old woman and her mother from Sunway Pyramid here to head to their house in SS6, Subang Jaya, on Friday but a misunderstanding led to a quarrel.

The two passengers then voiced their anger after a slight delay in being picked up. They then slammed the car door hard.

Another argument was sparked after the driver unintentionally drove the two to the wrong house, near their intended destination.

The driver, unhappy with how he was treated, then tried to take a photo of the mother and daughter. The enraged former athlete is said to have then punched the driver in the right eye in her bid to get him to stop.

The issue came to light after the driver wrote about his account on social media, which quickly went viral.

Subang Jaya OCPD Asst Comm Mohammad Azlin Sadari said the police later met both parties.

“They lodged police reports and we have recorded their statements. There was a misunderstanding which led to the injury.

“When the driver was blocked from taking a photo of the passengers, he was hit in the eye.

“Both sides were called in. After a discussion, they made peace and withdrew their reports,” ACP Mohammad Azlin said.
