A New Jersey man who got drunk in West Virginia and mistakenly ordered a $1,635 Uber ride to his home state will be reimbursed by a food delivery company.
Jamie Giovinazzo, founder of Eat Clean Bro in Freehold, New Jersey, says his company will pay the fare to thank Kenny Bachman for choosing not to drive while drunk. Giovinazzo says Bachman’s decision helped keep the roadway safe for other motorists.
Bachman intended to get a ride to the house where he was staying near West Virginia University. He fell asleep in the car and awoke two hours into the 300-mile journey to his home in Gloucester County.
Bachman had requested donations via GoFundMe to pay the fare. That money will instead go to Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

Kara Yetishefsky, 41, faces one count of perjury, police said.
Manchester police arrested Yetishefsky on March 31, 2016, on a DUI charge. In court on Aug. 15, Superior Court Judge Laura Baldini asked Yetishefsky, under oath, whether she had participated in the state’s alcohol education program, or any similar program, and if she had ever been convicted of operating under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Yetishefsky answered “no” to both questions, state investigator Anthony Duarte wrote in a warrant application.
Yetishefsky had a previous arrest in California and two previous arrests in Oregon for allegedly operating under the influence, Duarte wrote. She was placed into a diversionary program for the first offense in Oregon and jailed for seven days and fined $1,793 for the second, he wrote.

It is for the jury to decide whether or not he was in actual physical control of a motor vehicle. The prosecutor can attempt to prove impairment by the officers’ observations.
An Uber driver was arrested on Monday for nearly running into a Dunkin Donuts shop after crashing over the curb, Arlington police said.
Denys N. Corso, 49, was charged with operating under the influence of drugs, operating to endanger, and negligent operation of a motor vehicle, police said.
Arlington Police Chief Frederick Ryan said he was standing outside the shop talking to a resident when Corso drove into the parking lot in a blue Ford Explorer. He drove over the curb and flower bed, nearly hitting the building, police said.
Police said it was clear that Corso was impaired. He was arrested after failing field sobriety tests. Officers determined that Corso may have used opioids before driving, and several unknown pills were found in his car, police said.
“This was a dangerous situation, where an individual allegedly under the influence of drugs drove recklessly through a busy parking lot and nearly struck a building,” Ryan said in a statement. “What matters most is that no innocent people were hurt.”
Douglas Adams : Forty-two.
The California Highway Patrol says the suspect was spotted in the greater Long Beach area atop a white horse named Guera on the 91 freeway.
“No joke,” the CHP tweeted with photos of the bizarre incident they say took place over the weekend. “We get a chuckle out of the interesting situations we encounter from time to time, but one thing the CHP does not do is ‘horse’ around with DUI.”
Police identified the suspect as 29-year-old Luis Perez of Placentia. Cops say Perez’s blood alcohol level was measured at twice the legal limit for operating a vehicle in California, according to CBS LA.
Perez was jailed, while the horse, which was unharmed in the incident, was placed in the care of Perez’s mother, according to CHP social media posts.
Department officials poked fun at the unlikely arrest, while also leaving followers with a firm message about the consequences of driving while intoxicated.
“No, you may not ride your horse on the freeway, and certainly not while intoxicated,” they wrote. “Don’t put yourself, your beautiful animal, or others in danger of being killed in traffic.”
Perez was held in lieu of $50,000 bond.
