He probably didn't pass Ubers background check so he had his wife sign up.

I think it said he was just using her car. You can, as long as you're on the insurance.
So I guess he was able to pass Ubers stringent background checks even though,

"Marrero had been arrested previously for several misdemeanors, including solicitation of an unlawful business, marijuana possession, and domestic battery, and he was convicted of criminal trespass and disorderly conduct, according to court records."

It is starting to look like the other Chicago driver from about 2 years ago that used his wife's ID to get onboard. I wonder what the Chicago aldermen will think about fingerprint based background checks now? If I remember right they were planning a 6 month evaluation period.

Unfortunately, this Morrero has made Fingerprinting almost a certainty, when the Chicago city council renders their decision in November. But the key question is whether or not Uber/Lyft will perform the expensive nationwide security investigation, once they have the fingerprints of applicants, and current drivers.

He's certainly one of the more egregious slip-through-the-background-check-cracks examples I've read about:

Marrero had been arrested previously for several misdemeanors, including solicitation of an unlawful business, marijuana possession and domestic battery, and he was convicted of criminal trespass and disorderly conduct, according to court records.

In another report, an Uber spokesperson says Marrero only drove for the company a "few times." As if that makes it better.

I can think of at least "one" time too many.

Also, I'm confused. It says the red Hyundai he was driving was registered to his wife's Uber Driver account... So the relative who ordered ride for drunk Pax was too distracted to notice that the person driving was a man, not a woman? Or can you have multiple drivers associated to the same vehicle?
