Mountain View (CBS SF) — An Uber driver was arrested for allegedly assaulting a police parking assistant issuing who was him a ticket in downtown Mountain View on Thursday evening, police said.

Ghulam Mohammadi, 62, was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and booked into Santa Clara County Jail, police said.

The assistant assigned to work parking enforcement saw a driver, later identified as Mohammadi, drop off a customer and park in a red zone at Bryant and California streets near a CVS Pharmacy, police said.

The assistant started to write up a parking ticket and quickly became involved in a confrontation with Mohammadi, according to police.

The suspect allegedly backed up into the police assistant’s car, which was pushed backward, police said.

The assistant was able to step away and didn’t suffer any injuries, according to police.

A spokeswoman for Uber said Mohammadi’s alleged behavior would violate Uber’s community guidelines. His access to the Uber platform has been suspended and he will not be able to provide rides for the ridesharing app’s customers while the incident is being investigated.

    It is alright everyone. Muslims can do whatever they like because this is how they were raised in their primitive, backwards culture. This is how they behave back in their homelands and we just want to make sure that they feel comfortable here as well.

      Gabe, please do not be surprised by the low quality of reporting that kcbs does. Management is too stupid and money hungry that they do not care about the quality of their work or how poorly articles/stories are written.
