Bachman initially contested the charge with Uber, claiming he didn't put his New Jersey address as his destination.

A young partygoer was given a pretty hefty bill for an Uber he took from a party in West Virginia, to New Jersey.

Bachman told NJ.com that he accidentally ordered an UberXL - a more expensive option to the typical UberX vehicle - and that he stayed in the van after he woke "because what am I, just going to get dropped off on the side of the road?"

A drunk man hailed an Uber near West Virginia University last weekend.

"I just woke up", Bachman, who admitted he had blacked out, said.

The alleged mistake cost Bachman $1,635.93.

Just about everyone has taken a drunken late-night Uber ride they might regret, or not even remember.

Scotland's Ryan Wilson cited for incident against England
Farrell, a few metres behind, pushes past a number of Scottish players to approach Wilson, who react negatively. Scotland had not scored a try against England at Murrayfield since wing Simon Danielli went over in 2004.

"I didn't know what to think", he said. Had it not been surge pricing, Bachman would have paid just $819.14, NJ.com reported.

"It would have cost like $800 but instead it came out to $1,600", Bachman told CBS Philly. Then blacked out after he got into the vehicle.

"What am I just going to get dropped off on the side of the road", he asked. The driver was fined at every toll.

The only problem according to the Sewell, New Jersey, resident, is Bachman has no memory of how he got into an UberXL, the ride-sharing app's priciest travel option.

Uber told NJ.com that the dispute has been resolved, and that Bachman agreed to pay the fare. Bachman had to make a stop to get cash to give the driver money for the tolls back to West Virginia.

Bachman says he's headed back to West Virginia this weekend to pick up his bags.

"The dude who was Ubering me home picked up my phone when I was asleep and answered the Facetime call and said 'Nah, dude".
