Uber drivers have been getting a lot of negative press these days. Seriously, like a whole lot. Whether it is rape allegations, people posing as Uber drivers, or, yup, more rape allegations – it seems like the company can’t crawl itself out of this vicious news cycle. Well, bad news, here’s some more bad press.

The latest news comes from a driver who allegedly picked up a passenger at their home and dropped them off at the airport. The driver then went back to their house and attempted to burglarize their home, according to the San Mateo Police Department, in California. A Ring security system captured the whole incident.

The driver in question, Jackie Gordon Wilson, was eventually charged with first-degree burglary and attempted first-degree burglary. Thankfully,  the homeowner’s Ring security system was activated, so Wilson was never able to get inside the home.

But here’s where things take a strange, ridiculous turn

Instead of fleeing the neighborhood, Wilson went and burglarized another home in the area. Coincidently enough, the second home also had a Ring system that caught him in the act. The homeowner uploaded the footage, leading to other users identifying him as an Uber driver.

Obviously, it’s safe to say Wilson isn’t an Uber driver anymore. In a statement provided to the San Francisco Chronicle, Uber said, “we removed the driver’s access to the app as soon as we were made aware of the allegations and stand ready to assist police in their investigation.”

Moral of the story here, if you’re an Uber driver, do your job and don’t do shady things. I mean, all you have to do is drive someone from point A to point B. It’s that simple. Don’t be a creep.
