Ride-sharing companies are convenient ways for people to move about town. However, a Tennessee woman is accused of taking that freedom of mobility a little too far in a west-central Florida city.
Police said Lamothe entered an Exxon station in Pinellas Park to buy a Juul electronic cigarette, the television station reported. After the clerk handed her the vaping device, Lamothe ran from the store, deputies said.
According to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office, Lamothe tried to get her Lyft driver to leave the gas station, WFLA reported. When the driver refused, Lamothe then called an Uber driver and walked away from the gas station, according to the arrest report.
Lamothe was later found by police in an Uber van in a nearby parking lot, WFLA reported.
