Cops: Uber driver’s gun discharges during fight with passengers at Adventure Island

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – An Uber driver’s gun discharged during an argument with two customers at Adventure Island on Sunday, according to Tampa police.

Police say the driver, Julian Leon, 29, went to the park to pick up Austin Korb, 23, and Skylar Korb, 27.

The Korbs were soaking wet, having presumably visited the park, and Leon would not let them inside the vehicle.

His refusal led to an argument that turned physical.

At one point, Leon claimed he was in fear for his life. He reached into the vehicle and pulled out a gun to defend himself.

The three men struggled over the weapon and a round was discharged.

No injuries were reported and there was no damage to the vehicle.

No charges have been filed.
