Uber Driver Bust

SEPTEMBER 5--Today’s creepy encounter with an Uber driver comes from St. Petersburg, Florida, where a worker with the transportation firm was arrested for prowling outside the apartment of two women he had dropped off around 4 AM Sunday.

Cops allege that Christopher Cuccorillo, 40, “had dropped off two young females” about an hour before a witness called to report hearing Cuccorillo “in the back of the condo building tampering with the rear window of their apartment.”

According to a criminal complaint, the witness reported spotting Cuccorillo “walking back and forth” behind the condo in an area secured by a six-foot fence (and which is “not within public view or open to the public”).

When confronted by police, Cuccorillo claimed that he was “checking on the females per their request due to their intoxication.” But when officers spoke with one of the women she “advised none of them made that request.”

During questioning, Cuccorillo’s story “changed several times” and he was “not able to dispel officer’s alarm.” Consequently, Cuccorillo (seen above) was arrested for loitering and prowling, a misdemeanor.

The Uber driver was booked into the Pinellas County jail, from which he was released late Sunday morning after posting $250 bond. (1 page)
