Uber Driver Arrested For DUI In Simi Valley After Super Bowl
A few Simi Valley Uber riders may have gotten more of a ride than they expected on Sunday evening, after an Uber driver was arrested by the Simi Valley Police Department, and charged with driving under the influence. According to the department, Robert Wing, 46, of Simi Valley, was arrested after he was observed slowing down for a green light by an officer on patrol, and was found to have a .25% blood alcohol level. Wing allegedly told the officer he'd already driven two to three other fares before being arrested, after watching the Super Bowl at a local bar. It's unknown if any of the riders in Wing's Uber had taken advantage of free ride codes from local Honda dealers on UberX, intended to reduce the amount of drunk driving after the Super Bowl.
