A rough week for ride-sharing service Uber got rougher with the arrest of one of its Bay Area drivers for allegedly fracturing a passenger’s skull in a hammer attack.
The San Francisco District Attorney’s office said Friday that it had charged Patrick Karajah a 26-year-old UberX driver from Pacifica, Calif., with assault with a deadly weapon in connection with an incident that took place in the city’s Bernal Heights area. Karajah has pleaded not guilty, and is free on bail.
