The below photos of Anjali Ramkissoon are going viral after Anjali was identified as the woman in the below viral video, titled “Drunk Girl Tries To Hijack An Uber and Destroys His Car!” Ramkissoon is actually Dr. Ramkissoon — at least, Anjali was identified as such — prior to Ramkisson losing her job with Jackson Health System, as seen in the statement below. But first, that viral video, which has gotten nearly 1.5 million views since being uploaded on January 19.
Warning: Ramkissoon uses colorful language in the video, which might be disturbing or offensive to some viewers.
The YouTube video describes what happened during the incident on Sunday evening in Miami, Florida, between Ramkissoon and the Uber driver in Mary Brickell Village. The Juan Cinco YouTube description states that Anjali jumped in the back seat of the Uber car, even though it wasn’t Ramkissoon’s Uber, and refused to get out. The Uber driver did not want to take Anjali, who appears to be intoxicated in the video, anywhere.
That’s when Ramkissoon and the Uber driver had a confrontation that found Anjali kicking the Uber driver in the groin. Later, Ramkissoon gets inside the Uber and tosses plenty of things out of the car and onto the ground, including scissors. Anjali nearly made it out of there before the cops arrived, and Ramkissoon was in a cab planning her allegedly drunken getaway. That’s where the YouTube description states that Anjali was placed in handcuffs after the police stood in front of the cab to block Ramkissoon from leaving.
“Once in handcuffs, she then tried kicking some of the police officers on the scene. It was only when they put her in the police car that she started crying, apologizing and claiming that she would lose her medical license (she claimed to be a neurologist) if she got arrested.
“The Uber driver was too good of a person and decided to take a cash settlement instead of pressing charges. In his words, ‘…she was crying (and) said (she) was sorry for everything.’ I don’t want to disclose the amount the driver was paid, but can say he could only use the money to pay his cellphone bill and maybe his cable bill.”
As reported by Heavy, photos of Ramkissoon have received 299,000 views since their photo gallery of Anjali was published on January 21. With the bikini-clad photos of Ramkissoon making the rounds, Anjali is receiving quite the response on social media.
On Twitter, photos of Ramkissoon run the gamut from those of Anjali in screenshot photos from Anjali’s viral Uber video to those of Ramkissoon in her bikini or enjoying a drink.
Anjali got off easy, claims the YouTube description, with Heavy reporting that Ramkissoon did not get arrested for her actions. However, the UMiamiMedicine Twitter account reported that Anjali has been put on leave — no word if that’s paid leave or unpaid leave.
“Dr. Anjali Ramkissoon is not a University of Miami faculty, physician or student. Please see the statement below from Jackson Health System.
“‘Anjali Ramkissoon, a fourth-year neurology resident employed by Jackson Health System, has been placed on administrative leave, effective immediately, and removed from all clinical duties. Jackson has launched an internal investigation. The outcome of the investigation will determine if any disciplinary action will be taken, up to and including termination.'”
The actions seen in the viral video of Anjali are a worry for some Lyft and Uber drivers concerned about safety. Ramkissoon, 30, is being called all sorts of names on social media. Now that Anjali’s photos have been shared online, even after Ramkissoon deleted her Instagram and Facebook accounts, Anjali is getting more attention for her pictures.
