Benjamin Golden

A vicious attack on Uber driver Edward Caban was caught on camera Friday, Oct. 30, 2015. Benjamin Golden of Newport Beach was charged in the attack, Costa Mesa police said. Video shows what appears to be an intoxicated man falling over and struggling to give directions in the back seat of Uber driver Edward Caban’s car.

Caban, fed up with the passenger, then pulls over in a parking lot and tells the man to exit the vehicle.

The man opens the door, but before getting out, he attacks Caban.

After being punched several times and having his hair pulled, Caban was able to defend himself using pepper spray.
