Woman Arrested On Multiple Charges In Uber Assault

The SFist reports:

The woman who yelled at, insulted, coughed on, and assaulted an Uber driver on Sunday because he told her to put on a mask, as seen in widely publicized video of the incident, has been arrested in Las Vegas on suspicion of assault and battery, conspiracy, and violation of health and safety code, among other charges.

The three women got out of the vehicle at San Bruno and Silver avenues, but not before hurling swears and insults at the driver, Subhakar Khadka, an immigrant from Nepal.

As Khadka told ABC 7, there were also threats of greater violence. “She started taunting me, cursing me, questioning me about being a man. The ladies were even talking about shooting me, calling their cousins to shoot me. They were making fun of my race,” he said.
