Uber drivers bond increased in rape case

An Uber driver hoping to get his bond reduced has it more than doubled by a Dallas County judge.

Police said 56-year-old Talal Ali Chammout followed a female passenger into her west Oak Cliff home last Saturday and sexually assaulted her.

Chammout was in court Thursday morning hoping to have bond amount lowered from $100,000.

The judge instead raised it to $250,000.
