His lawsuit has been filed in U.S District Court in Detroit and in it he claims the company ‘ripped him off’ and failed to pay him both wages and overtime.

In the complaint he wrote: 

I busted my butt for them. They gave me no Christmas bonus, I wasn’t invited to any corporate parties, they made me work when I was sick and didn’t let me spend time with my two children.

It’s hard to know how to respond to someone who refuses to take responsibility for his own actions.

Our hearts go out to the victims’ families who have to live with the consequences of his terrible crimes.

Dalton allegedly told investigators that when he opened the Uber app a ‘devil head popped up on his screen’ and when he pressed the button ‘that is when all the problems started’.

He has been ordered to undergo a mental competency exam.
