Benjamin Golden, the former Taco Bell executive who assaulted an Uber driver and got caught by dash-cam video that went viral, is now suing the driver for $5 million. Golden was quickly vilified after the video of him punching the driver, Edward Caban, went viral.

In the original incident, Golden was extremely drunk, and repeatedly punched and slapped Caban when he asked him to get out of his car. Caban was able to use pepper spray on Golden, and he was arrested shortly thereafter by police. After the video went viral, Golden was fired from his job as a marketing executive at Taco Bell.
