Crazy Uber Driver Arrested For Having Fake Police Badge And Gun


And handcuffs. And two extra loaded magazines.

Meet 57-year-old Uber driver and South Carolina resident David Stanley Hubbard. By the time you’re done reading this, it’ll be clear he’s not right in the head. According to Post and Courier and CNBC, Hubbard was arrested last Saturday by local police after two of his passengers reported him for impersonating a police officer. Actually, a US Federal Marshall. Their first clue were the police sirens on his 2007 Honda Pilot. The two passengers then told Hubbard he didn’t have to run the lights, and then things got both weirder and scarier.

Hubbard began discussing "killing people and chasing murderers." When he came to a red light, the passengers quickly bailed out of the vehicle and flagged down a local police officer. It didn’t take long for authorities to find Hubbard (there can’t be that many Honda Pilots with rollers around town), and when they did they also discovered a fake US Marshall badge, handcuffs, and a loaded semi-automatic pistol, complete with two extra and loaded magazines. Hubbard has now been charged with two felonies, impersonating a police officer and carrying a concealed weapon, and he’s being held on a $100,000 bond.

Fortunately nobody got hurt, but this isn’t the first time a mentally disturbed individual has been found to be driving for Uber. Almost exactly a year ago in Kalamazoo, Michigan, an Uber driver went on a shooting rampage, killing six people and wounding two others. He blamed Uber for his actions, claiming the ride-sharing app took over his "mind and body," making him carry out the rampage. Uber soon admitted it needed to do a better job screening its drivers. Clearly there’s more work to be done.
