15-Year-Old Boy Dies in His Sleep After ‘Surfing’ on Roof of an Uber — Leading to Driver’s Arrest

A New York Uber driver is accused of manslaughter after three teenage passengers who’d been drinking allegedly paid him to let them climb onto the roof of his moving car — and then one of them fell off and died, PEOPLE confirms.

The driver, 24-year-old Danyal Cheema, of Huntington Station, was charged Monday with second-degree manslaughter in the death of 15-year-old Ryan Mullen, of Cold Spring Harbor.

Cheema is being held in lieu of $ 200,000 bond following his arrest on Sunday. It was unclear if he’d entered a plea. His attorney, Christopher Renfroe, did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

In the incident shortly after midnight on Sept. 23, Cheema was behind the wheel of his 2010 Toyota Highlander as an Uber driver when he picked up the three teen boys in Huntington, after they had been drinking, according to the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office.

On the way to their destination, the boys allegedly offered Cheema $ 70 cash — and gave him $ 40 — if he’d let them climb onto the car’s roof at an intersection so they could “car surf” as the vehicle took off, the investigation revealed.

Mullen and a second teen then remained on the roof as Cheema drove along Cove Road, with the third boy recording them in a Snapchat video.

Mullen’s subsequent fall led to head trauma “which resulted in his death,” according to the prosecutor’s office. Although Cheema brought all three boys to their destination at a home in Huntington, Mullen “succumbed to his injuries in his sleep later that day,” the prosecutor’s office said.

“This was an incredibly bad decision by the defendant and a bad decision by the boys involved,” District Attorney Timothy Sini said in a news release. “But at the end of the day, this defendant is an adult who was contracted to safely bring those boys home and he failed to do that.”

“We have a culture right now where the mindset is, ‘How can we outdo each other?’ Particularly among young people on social media, and we often see the tragic consequences of that,” Sini said. “A lot of young people think they are invincible and that’s something we need to keep drilling in their heads that this could happen to anyone when you engage in this kind of conduct.”

He added: “In this day and age, we often encourage people to use ride sharing services because it’s a safe alternative to drinking and driving. These boys were doing that; they were drinking that night and they made the right decision to contract with a car service.”

“Unfortunately the defendant made a reckless decision and engaged in reckless conduct that caused the death of a young boy, and he will be held accountable for that,” Sini said.

In his obituary, Ryan was remembered as a “loving son” and “fierce friend.”

He “lived life so large and his time here was short,” his family wrote. “God had other plans.”

Cheema faces five to 15 years in prison if convicted of the manslaughter charge. He is due back in court on Friday.

Texas Prosecutor Fired After Allegedly Berating Uber Driver: ‘Who Are They Going to Believe?’

Dallas County officials have fired a prosecutor after she allegedly berated an Uber driver and accused him of kidnapping her during a Friday ride that was captured on audio.

Jody Warner, 32, allegedly insulted and harassed 26-year-old Shaun Platt as he attempted to drive her home from a bar late that night.

“She actually hit me,” Platt recalled during an interview with ABC News. “It was not how I expected my night to go.”

Platt said Warner began yelling at friends out the window after he picked Warner up at Capitol Pub, the Dallas Morning News reports. He said she became upset when he tried to initiate small talk and grew angrier after she asked him to change directions.

The driver recorded the incident, and in the footage, a woman’s voice is heard calling plat “stupid,” “an idiot” and “a legitimate retard.”

“She kept saying she was the assistant D.A. Said, ‘Who are they gonna believe? You or me?’ ” Platt told ABC. “I said, ‘You know what? You’re kinda right.’ So I took out my phone and I recorded it.”

Platt recounted his story to the Dallas publication, noting that Warner allegedly threatened him by saying he was “Never going to work again,” and “Who are they going to believe? I’m a district attorney.”

In audio of the incident, the woman’s voice was heard saying, “I think this might be kidnapping right now, actually.” However, Platt is heard telling her she is free to leave and even asks her to leave the car.

Platt said he eventually called the police and an officer took Warner away. Dallas police did not immediately respond to a request for comment from PEOPLE.

Detective Who Berated Uber Driver Has Been Transferred

In a statement to ABC, Warner denied hitting Platt, but expressed regret over the incident.

“I cringe whenever I hear or think about the things that I said that night,” she said. “The audio doesn’t tell you that I was in a situation that made me feel very uncomfortable.”

On Monday, District Attorney Faith Johnson revealed the firing in a statement, announcing that a “thorough investigation” had been conducted.

“Although criminal charges have not been filed, behavior is contrary to this office’s core principle of integrity, and it will not be tolerated,” Johnson said.

Platt told ABC that he forgives Warner and wants the public to leave her alone.

“I’m sorry that it cost her her job. That was not my intent,” he said. “But you don’t treat people that way.”

Uber inadvertently underpaid New York City drivers for over two yearsUber generally takes a commission from its drivers after deducting taxes and some fees, but it instead took a higher percentage from its New York City drivers using the full fare before accounting for sales taxes and fees, according to the Wall Street Journal, which first reported the news. “We are committed to paying every driver every penny they are owed – plus interest – as quickly as possible,” Rachel Holt, Uber’s regional general manager for U.S. and Canada, said via email. All New York City drivers under the 2014 agreement would be eligible for a refund, regardless of whether they are still active or not, as long as they completed an Uber ride, the Journal report said.

Im Auftrag Von Links Und Rechts. Hans Frederiks Biografien Uber Herbert Wehner Und Ihre Wirkungen in Den Printmedien Zwischen 1969 Und 1983

Examensarbeit aus dem Jahr 2009 im Fachbereich Geschichte Europa – and. Länder – Neueste Geschichte, Europäische Einigung, Note: 1,0, Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena (Historisches Institut), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Hans Frederik publizierte seit den sechziger Jahren eine Reihe von Werken über Politiker der SPD als auch der CDU. Nicht nur, dass Hans Frederik selbst publizierte, sondern er führte auch Regie innerhalb seines Verlages politisches Archiv, in welchem seit 1961 eine Reihe von Werken zu Politikern oder politischen Themen erschienen. Besonders Herbert Wehner fand innerhalb des Verlages, als auch bei Hans Frederik, besondere Beachtung, so dass sich gleich zwei Biographien und eine Reihe anderer Werke, ausgiebig mit dem Werdegang des Fraktionsvorsitzenden der Sozialdemokraten in den siebziger Jahren beschäftigten. Kaum ein anderes Verlagshaus oder Autor publizierte in einem solchen Umfang über einen Politiker. Auf Grund dieses AusmaBes der aufgelegten Werke, als auch der Bücher selbst, die erste Publikation “Gezeichnet vom Zwielicht seiner Zeit” umfasste in ihren letzten Auflagen über 600 Seiten, machen sie für eine umfassende Betrachtung interessant. Dabei soll es nicht nur Ziel sein, das von Frederik gezeichnete Portrait Wehners und die von ihm genutzten Quellen kritisch darzustellen und zu hinterfragen, sondern auch die Intentionen des Autors und vermeintlicher Hintermänner, dieses Portrait von Wehner zu zeichnen. In diesem Zusammenhang ist es notwendig, auch einen Einblick in den Lebenslauf und die verschiedensten Beziehungen des Autors zu politischen Gruppierungen aufzuzeigen. Da Hans Frederik nicht nur eine Publikation über Herbert Wehner veröffentlichte, soll ebenso besonderes betrachtet werden, inwieweit sich die Darstellung und die Biographie Herbert Wehners innerhalb der Veröffentlichungen verändert haben und welche gesellschaftlichen Kreise mit den Werken angesprochen werden sollten. Diesbezüglich ist auch ein Blick a.

3 ways Uber can help its drivers
