BAINBRIDGE, OHIO: A motorist stopped to assist a woman crawling alongside the road near the Lake in the Woods Drive on Saturday, November 12, around 6.45 pm. He then took her to a restaurant on East Washington Street to seek help. The 26-year-old Bainbridge woman confessed that she was ousted from her Uber ride for being drunk.
She was uncooperative and began causing a ruckus when the police arrived. The woman claimed that she was fine when officers told her to go to a hospital.
