PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) - Police say a wiretapping charge filed against an Uber driver operating illegally in Portsmouth has been downgraded from a felony to a misdemeanor.

The Portsmouth Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1K1nCJt ) 29-year-old Christopher David was arrested in November for allegedly audio-recording a bar bouncer without his knowledge or permission.

Police say charges were brought against David after he posted a video containing the audio to YouTube and the bouncer complained.

In the video, the bouncer is heard warning David that it is illegal to operate Uber in the New Hampshire city.

David says he’s happy that his potential maximum sentence has been decreased from three to five years in state prison to one year in county jail.

The Dover man says he still plans to take the case to trial.
