The vicious attack of an Uber driver in Costa Mesa, Calif., was caught on camera. The video shows what appears to be an intoxicated attempting to give directions to the driver, Edward Caban.
To no success, it is reported that Caban pulled over in a parking lot and asked the man to exit the vehicle.
The man opens the door, but before getting out, the video shows the man punch Caban several times.
Caban was able to defend himself using pepper spray.
“I didn’t think something like this would happen this early in the night. That’s why I stopped driving 2 a.m. shifts, for this very reason,” Caban told reporters.
Reports state Caban is now looking for a new job as he doesn’t feel safe driving for Uber.
The man police said is responsible for the attack, 32-year-old Benjamin Golden of Newport Beach, was arrested at the scene.
He was charged with assault on a cab driver and public intoxication, both are misdemeanors.
