Did Uber Driver Set New Record for Driving Violations?

HAWTHORNE, CA—The mobile-based motor technology of Uber has prompted a political, financial and social tidal wave that seems to be drowning anyone involved.

Jeremiah Cauderno Maniquiz, 23, was stopped by Hawthorne Police Department (HPD) on Monday, June 16 at approximately 3:30 a.m. Police charged him with possession of a controlled substance, two DUI charges and evading a peace officer. The two DUI charges were for alcohol/drugs and having a Blood Alcohol Level (BAL) of 0.08 percent or higher.

According to the mobile application’s Web site, “Uber is evolving the way the world moves. By seamlessly connecting riders to drivers through our apps, we make cities more accessible, opening up more possibilities for riders and more business for drivers. From our founding in 2009 to our launches in over 70 cities today, Uber’s rapidly expanding global presence continues to bring people and their cities closer.”

The mobile app has recently spawned road-shutdown protests in Europe and lawsuits throughout the United States.

There appear to be results that are less global and more local, however, and the arrest of Maniquiz may be used as an example should opponents of Uber use his case.
