LOS ANGELES, July 25 (UPI) -- Two Uber drivers were arrested in Chicago and Palo Alto, Calif., in separate incidents over the weekend, providing more recent speed bumps for the company.
A driver was charged with sexual assault in Palo Alto after a woman told police the man made passes at her, and wouldn't stop and let her out when she asked him, police said.
Rodolf Vjerdh, 59, is being held for sexual assault. Police believe he might have more victims.
The other driver was pulled over in Chicago for not wearing a seat belt, but was then arrested when police found a loaded gun, which he was not licensed to carry and marijuana in his possession, police said. The driver also has a felony record.
Chad Pilcher, 41, is being held on $100,000 bail for possession of a defaced firearm and marijuana. He was also cited for not wearing a seat belt.
Uber has a strict rule against guns in their drivers' vehicles. Both drivers were immediately banned from further work for the company.
