A doctor in Miami is on administrative leave after a bizarre attack on an Uber driver was captured on camera.

The woman seen in the confrontation with the Uber driver on Sunday is identified as Anjali Ramkissoon, a fourth-year neurology resident.

When Ramkissoon jumped into an Uber that wasn't hers, the customer who did order the Uber started recording the encounter.

Ramkissoon is heard at one point in the video saying, "I'm a five-foot-girl who weighs 100 pounds, getting really belligerent right now."

Ramkissoon eventually attacks the driver, kneeing him. He, in return, throws her to the ground.
The passenger filming says, "You have lost your mind."

Ramkissoon replies, "I have lost my mind!"

She eventually walks away from the scene, but the incident has followed her. She is now on leave from the Jackson Health System and an internal investigation has been launched into the case. In a statement, the hospital system said, they're working to "determine if any disciplinary action will be taken, up to and including termination."

Ramkissoon did not respond to ABC News' request for comment.
