A fight had broken out outside of a Denver Uber driver’s car on Saturday, and the driver exited his vehicle to help separate the fight. Upon doing so, his vehicle was then stolen by a woman, Meagan Osgood, and she wrecked the man’s car while driving it through a nearby yard.
The car thief was noted as being extremely intoxicated, and even came very near to hitting the man who actually owns the car himself! He had to dive out of the way of his own vehicle because of Osgood’s wreck less behavior. Police hen noticed the beat down car sitting, and approached the car asking her to exit the vehicle. She resisted arrest and refused to cooperate with law enforcement.
Osgood has since been charged with multiple felonies as well as some misdemeanors.

Woman allegedly steals Uber vehicle, crashes through Fort Collins yard
A woman was arrested in Fort Collins after allegedly stealing an Uber driver’s vehicle and crashing it through a yard then driving off in the heavily damaged vehicle.
The incident happened about 2:40 a.m. Saturday in the 700 block of Glenn Ridge Drive. A fight had broken out among passengers, and one woman refused to exit the vehicle, according to a Larimer County sheriff’s news release.
Fighting spilled outside the Uber vehicle, and the driver got out to restore order. A woman who had remained inside the vehicle locked the doors and drove off through a yard, striking a retaining wall, a tree and other landscaping.
The Uber driver had to jump out of the way of his own vehicle to escape injury, according to the release. The woman who took off in the Uber vehicle was allegedly “very intoxicated.”
Sheriff’s deputies and Fort Collins police spotted the vehicle, with heavy front-end damage, at North College Avenue and Myrtle Street and stopped it.
Initially the driver refused to get out. She eventually did but then “refused commands” to step away from the vehicle. A Fort Collins police officer fired a pepper ball at the woman’s feet. She was tackled and taken into custody.
Meagan Kathleen Osgood, 25, was taken to a hospital, treated and released. She was booked into the Larimer County Jail on suspicion of aggravated motor vehicle theft, menacing and criminal mischief, all felonies. She also faces a DUI charge, as well as obstructing an officer and resisting arrest.
