New Jersey Company Will Pay For Drunken Bro's $1,600 Uber Ride

A New Jersey company has agreed to pay for one Uber customer's wild ride. 

Kenny Bachman reportedly blacked out after a night of wild partying and mistakenly took an Uber that would lead him through three states. The final bill? $1,635! The company Eat Clean Bro says that it will foot the customer's insane bill as a way to thank Bachman for not drunk driving, reports Fox News.

Jamie Giovinazzo, founder of the meal prep firm in Freehold, New Jersey, shared the news of the clean bill. Initially, Bachman was asking for donations via GoFundMe to pay the steep fare. That money—currently at $695— will now go towards Mothers Against Drunk Driving. 

As previously reportedBachman enjoyed a night of drinking in Morgantown, West Virginia. He intended to take an Uber to the place he was staying—near West Virginia University's campus—but ended up drunkenly requesting the driver to take him all the way home, reports NJ.com. That location was over 300 miles away in Gloucester County, New Jersey. 

"I just woke up," Bachman said to NJ Advance Media. "And I'm thinking, 'Why the f*ck am I in the car next to some random ass dude I don't even know? Afterwards I had it fully sink in. Once the ride ended and I saw how much it was when I was like 'Alright, this is insane, that's just crazy.'" 

He claimed that the driver, who he rated five stars, had his phone and wouldn't let him dial for him. 

"Obviously I sent the Uber, I don't know where to, I know I wouldn't send it to my house, I knew where I was," he said. "He was on my phone, without me allowing it."

Uber confirmed that the ride happened and that the driver took Bachman to the destination he asked for. Uber and Bachman connected and resolved the matter and he ended up agreeing to pay the full fare. 

Eat Clean Bro shared news of the agreement on its Facebook.
