A Guy Gets a DUI, Then Thinks the Cop Driving Him to Jail Is His Uber Driver

November 30, 2018

If this guy had just used Uber to begin with, he wouldn't have made national news for being a moron. 40-year-old Travis Howard got a DUI on Saturday after he rear-ended another car at a stoplight near Fort Myers, Florida. When cops asked how it happened, he couldn't remember. Then he refused a breathalyzer failed several sobriety tests, and when they asked for his license, he handed them a hotel room key.

They eventually put him in the back of a cop car. Then on his way to jail, he forgot he'd been arrested thought the cop was an Uber driver and asked if he could go straight to bed when they got to his hotel.

Turns out he has a pretty long rap sheet, and this is his fifth arrest in less than a year. His new charges include drunk driving, and causing damage to someone else's property while driving under the influence.
