Uber driver Edward Caban uploaded a graphic video on Friday showing how he was beaten by a passenger after he kicked him out of his cab. Warning: some viewers may find this offensive.
The video follows Caban as he attempted to get directions from his passenger who appears to be drunk in Costa Mesa, California. After several attempts to find out where he needs to go, he stops the car and asks him to get out.
The passenger then proceeds to beat Edward who manages to grab pepper spray and stop the attack. CNN reports the passenger was arrested and banned from using Uber ever again. Caban wanted to upload the video to highlight some of the problems Uber drivers have to contend with.
