A California man ended his night with sore eyes and in handcuffs after his Uber driver fought back against an alleged assault.
Uber driver Edward Caban was able to grab his pepper spray and defend himself against 32-year-old Benjamin Golden, the passenger Caban said was too drunk and belligerent to give proper directions.
He captured the entire encounter on his dashboard camera.
"He was grabbing my head and was trying to smash it against the window," Caban told NBC4.
"I wanted to make sure he didn't get away," Caban said. "I have lost so much money on people like him and I'm done dealing with it. They take the food right out of my mouth."
Golden was arrested on public intoxication and assault charges, Costa Mesa police said.
Caban ended his YouTube description with this very true statement: "Uber drivers don't get paid enough to deal with this sh*t."
