On 7th March 2021, Arna, Malaysia King, and their other friend violently attacked Subhakar Khadka (an immigrant from Nepal and an SF Bay Area Uber driver) partway through a ride.

The three passengers responded with inappropriate comments when Khadka asked them to wear their masks while in the vehicle (as per the rideshare program's user agreement). Also, Arna adamantly refused to put on her mask.

Was the Uber girl arrested?

Arna coughed on the driver and attempted to rip off his mask and snatch the phone he was using to record the incident. Eventually, she surrendered to the cops within a week of Khadka's video going viral.

A lot transpired after Arna handed herself over to the police. She was charged with assault on a hired driver, violating the local health ordinance, and attempted robbery. Law enforcement also added a misdemeanour count of battery to her felonies.

Meanwhile, the woman who pepper-sprayed Khadka into the back of his car was Malaysia King. She repeated her actions through the partially opened car window when he eventually got the girls out of the vehicle.

Malaysia was arrested by an LA cop a few days later over alleged bank fraud. Besides the bank fraud charges, the lady faced assault with caustic chemical and conspiracy charges, for she was also linked to the cab driver's incident.
