Jersey Shore Police Arrest Uber Driver They Say Fondled Himself in Backseat

Police down the Jersey Shore charged an Uber driver who they say got into the back seat of his black car and inappropriately touched himself during a ride over Memorial Day Weekend.

Avalon Police became aware of the caught-on-camera incident after a seasonal resident reported rideshare driver's alleged actions. The woman apparently captured part of the incident on her cellphone.

The driver got into the back seat and began to fondle himself through his clothing, said investigators.

On Tuesday, police announced the arrest of Northeast Philadelphia's Nayal Salem. Police charged the 57-year-old with lewdness, false imprisonment and harassment "after the woman claimed she could not open the rear door of his vehicle to exit."

Earlier, Uber said the driver was no longer driving for the service. They added that he was licensed to operate in Philadelphia by the Philadelphia Parking Authority, not in New Jersey.
