Florida man socks Uber driver in mask-wearing fight


A man in Florida punched an Uber driver in the face when he asked him to put on a mask before getting into the car, a report said Wednesday.

The suspect, 30-year-old Christopher Vacha, ordered the Uber at about 4:30 a.m. Tuesday to Treasure Island, near Tampa, the Smoking Gun reported.

The driver, 68-year-old Raymond Jackson, told Vacha he had to wear a mask to get in, and Vacha allegedly responded by blowing into his face through the driver-side window, the report said.

Vacha then allegedly punched Jackson in the face after he got out of the car.

He was arrested for aggravated assault of a person 65 or older, a felony, and held $50,000 bond.
