The Uber driver refused the group service as Amanda Soto continued to scream profanities at the driver and at the deputy, according to the report.
According to the arrest report, the deputy escorted the group out of the Uber and tried to calm Amanda Soto, who became increasingly upset, continued to scream profanities and began crying hysterically.
Authorities said that despite the numerous number of times the deputy tried to calm Amanda Soto, she remained agitated and repeatedly said her husband is a congressman, therefore “She could do whatever she wants.”
Darren Soto (D-Orlando), released the following statement regarding his wife’s arrest: "My wife, Amanda, has for years suffered from depression and been under medical care. In accordance with her treatment plan and under her doctor's supervisor, she recently stopped using her medications. Yesterday, she drank too much and reached an argumentative state with a family member, which led to (her) arrest. She deeply regrets her actions and takes full responsibility for them."
Amanda Soto was released on bail Monday morning.
