An Uber driver was arrested Tuesday in Denver for trying to rob the home of a customer he had just taken to the airport. Gerald Montgomery, 51, is accused of second degree assault after trying to sneak in the back door of a home last Thursday. Montgomery took a customer to Denver international airport and then went back and tried to get into her house, police spokesman Sonny Jackson told the The Denver Post. Since its founding Uber has staved off fierce competition with traditional taxi companies, thanks to the million trips it carries out daily in 295 cities in 55 countries.
