Kenny Bachman was out with friends in Morgantown, West Virginia, when he called an Uber to take him back to his friend's place. He also gave the driver a five-star review, but he did end up challenging the charge.

Kenneth Bachman a 22 year old New Jersey man is on the hook for $1635.93 to Uber after having caught the auto sharing outlet from West Virginia to his Garden State home.

The only problem is the party was 300 miles away from his home. "That's insane. Why did you agree to take me to New Jersey from West Virginia?" he said, upon waking from his expensive, 300 mile nap. Rather than get out of the vehicle or turn around, he just went with it.

"Afterwards I had it fully sink in", Bachman said.

"I guess this kind of embarrassing", he admitted to KYW. He said that he never put the address into the phone and that, at some point, the driver got control of the phone.

IN played last Friday and now had six days before playing again. (10.5), Isaiah Roby (8.4) and Anton Gill (8.2). Since then, the Cornhuskers are 10-2 and shooting 46 percent from the field while also outrebounding opponents.

Kenneth adds that he accidentally ordered a more expensive UberXL, and had no choice but to pay the fare. Worse yet, the ride was booked while surge pricing was in effect which almost doubled the fare. "He was on my phone, without me allowing it".

We're not sure how many Uber drivers would be game for a London to Newcastle run at 3am, but some of the ones we've spoken to in the past have told us about some pretty lengthy trips.

How downhill? Well Bachman ended up ordering an Uber to drive him home, a ride that concluded with a $1,635.93 bill.

On top of that, the Uber driver didn't have money for tolls and was fined at every toll booth.
