A drunk Uber passenger has been arrested for verbally abusing his driver, stealing his taxi and crashing it into an Oregon curb, police said late Sunday. Collin Lyle, 31, was being driven from Portland to nearby Tigard on Saturday night when he became "verbally abusive, which then escalated to physical contact," police said in a statement. The Tigard Police Department said Lyle’s behavior got so bad it "began to interfere with the driver’s ability to control his vehicle," forcing him to turn into the parking lot of a 7-Eleven in Tigard.
