Tallahassee Uber Eats driver arrested in nunchuck attack of tow company worker


A Tallahassee man working as an Uber Eats driver is facing felony charges after police say he attacked a tow truck driver with a pair of nunchucks.

Ronald Castillo was arrested Wednesday night after the incident inside a Gaines Street parking garage where he confronted a driver attempting to tow his Kia Spectra.

Castillo, 42, faces charges of aggravated battery using a deadly weapon, burglary of a structure or conveyance, grand theft of a motor vehicle and petty theft. He was released on bond Thursday.

According to court records, Castillo’s vehicle was being towed at about 9 p.m. because he was parked in a reserved spot and without a decal for the student apartment complex’s parking garage.

He tried to drive the car off the truck after it had been lifted and refused to pay the $50 drop fee. He was unsuccessful and hit the tow truck driver with nunchucks in the arm and head before he eventually drove off the lift and fled.

His own car was damaged.

Tallahassee Police officers pulled over the car and found nunchucks in the door panel.
