New York Post:
An Uber driver was viciously attacked last month by a rowdy quintet he picked up outside a Queens jiggle joint — and he remained in a coma Saturday, authorities said.
The 54-year-old cabbie picked up three men and two women — one with pink hair — outside the Privileged Gentlemen’s Club on Queens Boulevard in Woodside at about 4:25 a.m. on Feb. 5, officials said.
When the driver spotted the rowdy crew drinking booze during the ride, he told them to stop — but they refused and began squabbling with him instead during the ride to Manhattan, law enforcement sources said.
The fed-up driver pulled over on the northwest corner of East 62nd Street and 2nd Avenue, where the boozy group took the fight to the sidewalk, surveillance video released by cops shows.
