Viral back-seat Tesla driver arrested, says he back-seat-Autopilot-ed home from jail

Earlier this week, police arrested Sharma, charging him with two counts of reckless driving and giving him a free one-night stay in the Santa Rita Jail. He claims to have been picked up the next day by a Tesla-owning friend, who joined him in the back seat for the illegal ride home.

“I’ve been brake-checked before really hard and the car stopped. It came to a complete stop. Elon Musk really knows what he’s doing and I think people are just tripping and they’re scared.”
