Uber Eats delivery man halts Duquesne-Loyola Chicago college game


There were unbelievable scenes in American college basketball when a game was stopped because an Uber Eats delivery driver arrived on the field to deliver a bag of McDonald’s to a customer.

The hilarious incident occurred three minutes into the second half of Loyola Chicago’s Duquesne game, when officials blew the whistle to stop play.

Duquesne striker Austin Rotroff intercepted a pass between Loyola players Philip Alston and Jacob Hutson, unaware that behind the play a delivery boy had entered the field carrying a bag and a drink from Maccas.

“Is it an Uber Eats delivery or something? He’s carrying a bag of McDonald’s. I’m not kidding, actually, I think that’s what’s happening,” said a stunned commenter on ESPN’s coverage of the game.

Duquesne coach Keith Dambrot, who briefly coached LeBron James in high school, called it the “craziest thing I’ve ever seen”.

“I really haven’t seen it, it’s that crazy,” Dambrot said.

“I just saw the video after the game. Our boys were terrified of laughing [the locker room]. Guy had a job to do. He did his job well.”

Security guards quickly led the man from the field to the stands, where he eventually found the fan who had ordered the McDonald’s and safely deposited the bag.

Dae Dae Grant and Jimmy Clark III each scored 13 points as Duquesne finally beat Loyola Chicago 72-58 after the hilarious stoppage.
