Uber driver charged in death of teen he allegedly let ride on roof

Danyal Cheema Suffolk County
District Attorney's Office

A New York Uber driver was charged Monday in the death of a teen, for allowing the youngster to car surf on the roof of his cab.

Danyal Cheema, 24, was driving three boozed-up boys in Huntington Sept. 23 when the teens offered to pay him $70 — and then $40 — if he’d allow them to ride on the roof of his 2010 Toyota Highlander, the Suffolk County District Attorney’s office said.

The driver allegedly accepted and two of the teens, including 15-year-old Ryan Mullen, climbed up on the roof as the third pal filmed the stunt on Snapchat.

As Cheema drove, Mullen fell off and hit his head on the roadway. He died in his sleep later that day from severe head trauma.

Prosecutors said Cheema made a “reckless” decision that resulted in the boy’s death.

“This was an incredibly bad decision by [Cheema] and by the boys involved,” Suffolk County DA Timothy Sini said in a statement. “But at the end of the day, this defendant is an adult who was contracted to safely bring those boys home and he failed to do that.”

Cheema was charged with manslaughter and pleaded not guilty in Suffolk County District Court Monday.

His bail was set at $200,000 cash or $400,000 bond and his license was suspended. He’s due back in court Nov. 9.

Cheema had been driving with Uber for a couple of months and has been permanently removed from the app, the company said.
Those who find the truth hateful just hate hearing the truth.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste.....on a nigger.

If you're not catching flak, you're not over the target.
