The French government is not taking matters lightly in their attempts to restrict  ridesharing service UberPop.
Today, two U.S. Uber executives were detained by French officials for running an illegal taxi company and concealing illegal documents, Tech Crunch reports.
Thibaud Simphal, manager of Uber France, and Pierre-Dimitri Gore-Coty, Uber’s GM for Western Europe are being held for further questioning concerning the legality of UberPop in France.
Last week, French taxi drivers staged a protest against Uber and demanded the expulsion of the ridesharing service for allowing drivers to pick up passengers in their own personal cars without having a professional driver’s license.
