DESTIN – A fist fight between an Uber driver and a taxi driver led to the arrest of the Uber driver.
The men were fighting over a fare, according to the 49-year-old Freeport man’s Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office arrest report.
The cab driver told the deputy that they’d had a parking disagreement while dropping off fares.
The Uber driver got out of his car, approached the cab driver and punched him three times in the face with a closed fist, according to his OCSO arrest report.
The suspect told the deputy that the victim had almost struck his car and exiting passenger, which upset him.
He said the other man struck him first, but the only injury the deputy could see did not appear to have been caused by being punched.
