DETROIT (AP/WOOD) — An Uber official is acknowledging that the company received a complaint about erratic driving by Jason Dalton Saturday night.
Uber passenger Matt Mellen said earlier Monday that he called police to report that Dalton was driving erratically more than an hour before the shootings began.
Uber says it received complaints about Dalton from several passengers, including one about erratic driving. Uber Chief Security Officer Joe Sullivan stated that the complaining passenger had already called 911.
An Uber spokesperson would not tell 24 Hour News 8 on Monday what the other complaints were about.
The company won’t say whether it talked to Dalton and is referring further questions to law enforcement.
The ride-hailing service says Dalton cleared a background check and was approved to be a driver on Jan. 25. He had given slightly more than 100 rides and had not received any complaints before Saturday.
Authorities have said Dalton does not have a criminal history before the shooting spree.
