The San Francisco Chronicle based in California reported that the driver, 21-year-old Itzel Ramirez, was arrested on Friday after the woman she
beat up called the police to report the assault.

The video showed the victim saying something to the driver, but no audio was recorded. Ramirez was then seen punching the woman multiple times before the victim picked up her keys and tried opening a door.



“Sheriff’s deputies said Ramirez admitted to assaulting the woman out of self-defense after the victim” reportedly used profane language with her, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

An Amazon spokeswoman was quoted as writing: “This does not reflect the high standards we have for drivers who deliver our packages,” adding that Ramirez will no longer be delivering packages for the company.
