CLIFTON PARK, N.Y. >> A Clifton Park man was ar­rested and charged with grop­ing a fe­male Uber driver while trans­port­ing him on state Route 146.

Jesse A. Fos­ter, 27, is ac­cused grop­ing the driver and sub­ject­ing her to un­wanted sex­ual con­tact as she pro­vided him a ride home.

Po­lice said the Uber driver stopped a New York State trooper who was con­duct­ing a traf­fic stop on state Route 146 in Clifton Park to ask for help re­mov­ing a pas­sen­ger from her ve­hi­cle.

When the of­fi­cer ap­proached the vic­tim’s car and asked Fos­ter to step out, po­lice said the man be­came bel­liger­ent. Fos­ter was taken into cus­tody with­out in­ci­dent, and was trans­ported to State Po­lice in Clifton Park for pro­cess­ing.

Fos­ter was charged with two counts of forcible touch­ing, a mis­de­meanor.

Fos­ter was re­leased on an ap­pear­ance ticket and is due back in Clifton Park Town Court on Jan. 8.
