Fox Sports Reporter Has Horrifying Uber Experience: Fox Sports reporter Kristine Leahy is now the latest victim of an unfortunate Uber incident and she tweeted out her horrifying story on Friday morning. According to Leahy, she once left her keys in an Uber three months ago and still has not gotten them back after all this time. As Leahy tells it, she first couldn’t get in contact with anyone, and when she finally did, she gave them her address so they could send the keys to her. They never came, and because Leahy didn’t pick up the keys in the first 45 days of them being there, the company has since moved them to an unknown location. After all this time, she still hasn’t gotten the keys to her apartment back. UPROXX article here
