Police: Ride-hailing Driver Choked Delaware College Student

Posted: Updated:

NEWARK, Del. (AP)- The driver of a ride-hailing service has been accused of assaulting a customer who was a University of Delaware student.
    
University of Delaware police said in a news release that 32-year-old Yolande Mcallister, of New Castle, choked the 19-year-old student and struck him several times during an argument Tuesday night in the parking lot of a residence hall.
    
The victim was treated at a hospital and later released.
    
Authorities say Mcallister fled the scene but has since been apprehended. He has been charged third-degree assault, strangulation and disorderly conduct.
    
It is unclear which ride-hailing service Mcallister was working for. Online jail records do not list whether he has an attorney.
