Shocking video has emerged showing a drunk woman attacking an Uber driver with takeout boxes of tacos during an argument inside the hired car. The footage was captured on the vehicle's CCTV by driver Marie Chavez while she worked her weekend shift in Midland, Texas.

The video shows a man and a woman sit in the back seat of Chavez's car with what appears to be three trays of food. The woman asks Chavez to return to a bar they had just been picked up from in order to collect more passengers, reports MailOnline.

The clip starts with Chavez telling a male passenger that he is "scratching up her car" while he was getting out, which he quickly apologizes for.

"Honestly, I think you need to go back and get them," the female passenger says. The driver replies, "I need you to exit my vehicle."

Speaking to a person outside the vehicle, she says: "I need this lady to get out of my vehicle please. I'm done, I'm not going to pick them up, I need you guys to exit my vehicle." She then asks a man who is outside the vehicle to not scream at her after he shouts "bullshit," and then again asks the woman to leave the vehicle.

After repeatedly telling the woman to get out of her vehicle because "she's done for the night," Chavez then points at the camera inside her car as a prompt for the stubborn passenger to exit.

After eventually opening the rear passenger door, the woman then picks up the boxes of food and throws them at Chavez.

"You're on camera lady," a stunned Chavez tells the female passenger, adding she is going to call the police immediately.

"Look at this, what you just did," an irate Chavez adds. She then asks the male passenger to look at the mess she made in her car.

"Yeah, she threw tacos," the man adds before offering to clean it up.

Chavez and her husband David released the footage as part of an appeal to find the woman.

"My wife is a wholesome, god-fearing woman who does this on the weekend to supplement her professional 9-5 job," David Chavez said, reports MailOnline. "She is embarrassed by this, but we will not let it go by the wayside. You don't treat people this way."
