OK prosecutors argue Uber driver accused of murder may flee

TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Oklahoma prosecutors are seeking to revoke bond for an Uber driver accused of murdering his passenger during a June altercation. They say it’s necessary to ensure that he won’t flee the country to avoid prosecution.

Prosecutors say Omar Emran Ba-Abbad’s defense has indicated that Saudi Arabia may pay his bond. The Tulsa World reports that he has dual citizenship there and the U.S. The Tulsa County District Attorney’s Office filed a motion on Thursday to get the driver’s bond revoked after a Tulsa County judge reinstated his $500,000 bond on Wednesday.

Defense attorney Thomas Adler says his client is innocent and doesn’t have anything to run from.
