Posted on July 25, 2016

Two Uber drivers were arrested in separate incidents over the weekend.

A man in Palo Alto, Calif., was arrested and charged with sexual assault after a female passenger told police he made uninvited advances and ignored her requests to stop the vehicle, according to police.

Another driver in Chicago was pulled over for not wearing a seat belt and was arrested when officers discovered marijuana and a loaded weapon in the car. Police learned the man does not have the proper license for carrying a firearm and has prior felony convictions.
