A New Jersey man visiting West Virginia has reportedly paid $1,635 (£1,160) for an Uber trip after drunkenly ordering a ride home instead of to his accommodation.

Bachman told NJ.com that his driver did not have money to pay for the unexpected tollbooths, so Bachman stopped at a CVS ATM to give the driver cash to use for tolls on the return trip.

Kenny Bachman, 21, racked up a $1,635.93 Uber fare after a night partying with friends from high school in Morgantown, W.Va., last Friday.

Bachman said, "I was just shocked". Rather than get out of the auto or turn around, he just went with it.

The surge pricing then doubled everything but the booking fee, according to NJ.com.

Germany Forms New Governing Coalition
A poll published on Sunday showed the SPD falling one percentage point to 16 percent, its lowest ever reading in the Emnid survey. In a tweet, they labelled the SPD's decision a "catastrophe" for Germany, promising fierce opposition over the coming four years.

To make matters worse, he had ordered an UberXL, which can hold up to six passengers but costs more than the usual ride. He even gave his driver five stars.

The Uber driver didn't have any money for the tolls on the way to Bachman's New Jersey home.

What a weird story, though it remains unlikely that an Uber driver willingly entered a destination multiple states away, taking toll fines throughout. He says he did not put in his home address for the ride, and that the driver had his phone, and even answered a FaceTime call from a friend while he was sleeping.

Bachman denied sending the auto to his house and said at one point the driver answered a FaceTime call on his personal cell phone. "He was on my phone, without me allowing it".

He says he unsuccessfully challenged the fare with Uber, which confirmed that the ride occurred.
