Yesterday, a Miami Uber driver under the Facebook name Mikebilly So-Focused live streamed as he was taken hostage by bomb-wielding passenger "Enrique" to assist in a bank robbery.

"Maybe what I'm saying will get me killed."

Elite Daily reports that at around 5 pm yesterday, the Uber driver started live streaming with the caption “omg 911 i need help.”


The live stream begins with Enrique, a bald man in a grey sport coat and jeans, attempting to take hostage a Navy Federal bank employee in Brickell, Florida.

She sternly refuses, "I'm not allowed to do that. "

"I want the public to listen. I've tried public channels."

Apparently, this is a "Robin Hood" mission, and we can hear Enrique promise to surrender once he has given the stolen money to poor people.

Later in the video, the driver faces the camera and explains his situation.

"So I'm riding with Enrique. He's got a bomb. He's got me riding around with him."

I wasn't even supposed to work today.

Seemingly unconcerned by this live stream, we can hear Enrique rambling in the background, "Let's not kill innocent civilians."

The driver asks Enrique to show the bomb to the camera, but instead Enrique shows off the pilfered cash in a pink envelope and mutters something about syncing up the bomb code.

"What does the clock say on that thing, bro?"

But what about that bomb?

Enrique's explanation of the bomb is unintelligible, but the driver attempts to explain.

"So he has a bomb, its got a timer," the driver says. "Apparently he has to call it every freakin by the hour. If he doesn't it explode in a five block radius."

The video ends with Enrique explaining his politically motivated rational, including concern over Russian interference with the US, and finished bytheorizing, "<aybe what I'm saying will get me killed."

A spokesman for Miami Beach Police Department, Officer Ernesto Rodriguez, stated, “The FBI may be filing charges today, but they’re handling this investigation so we don’t have any more information.”
