An Uber driver nearly lost an ear in a fight in a parking garage at a Florida airport.
Local media reports that 26-year-old Sir Christian Alexander Gordon appeared in court Thursday to face a charge of aggravated battery. The charge is from what authorities describe as a road rage fight with Uber driver Joseph Soriero at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.
Authorities say surveillance video shows Gordon approaching Soriero and poking him in the face. Soreiro attempted to swing a punch at Gordon but missed. Gordon is then seen punching Soriero multiple times.
Soriero’s attorney says his client’s left ear had to be reattached after the fight. Gordon’s bondsman told the judge the defendant acted in self-defense. Gordon is out on bond.
