    A former Uber driver facing charges after police say he sexually assaulted a passenger in Massachusetts is out on $500 bail.

    State police arrested 31-year-old Junior Clarke, of Lawrence, on Saturday on charges of indecent assault and battery and related crimes.

    Troopers responded to a home in Norwood around 5 a.m. Saturday, where the victim told police she'd been sexually assaulted by the driver, who had just dropped her off.

    The 25-year-old woman told police that Clarke repeatedly asked her to kiss him, touched her inappropriately and accosted her during the approximately 50-mile trip from Methuen.

    Clarke has agreed not to make contact with the victim or witness and to never seek employment with a transportation company.

    Clarke's next court date is in August.

    An Uber spokesperson says they are fully cooperating with police.
