Uber Driver Accused of Kidnapping & Sexually Assault an Intoxicated Female Passenger | 9-8-2017

A 46-year-old Uber driver with a felony record was arrested on suspicion of kidnapping and sexually assaulting an intoxicated passenger who was taken to a hotel and then assaulted.

LAPD reported that Uber driver, Alaric Spence, picked up a 24-year-old woman who had been out drinking in downtown L.A. She fell unconscious in his car, and that is when the Spence took her to a motel on Lankershim Boulevard and sexually assaulted her.

The victim awoke in a strange motel and remembered falling asleep in the back of her Uber.

Uber, in a statement, said that it is fully cooperating with the LAPD and has since banned the driver. “No one should ever have to experience the violent act that’s been reported to the police,” Uber said.

This event marks the latest sexual assault case to involve a driver for the ride-hailing service as other Uber drivers have been accused of sexually assaulting intoxicated women.
