(NEWSER)– Former fast food marketing executive Benjamin Golden has been barred from ever using Uber again, but that could be the least of his problems.

The 32-year-old, who was fired after video of him allegedly assaulting an Uber driver went viral, now faces charges of assault and battery, assault on public transportation property, and battery on a public transit employee with injury, reports CNBC. He was charged with misdemeanor assault and public intoxication after the incident on Friday in Costa Mesa, Calif., and prosecutors in Orange County say the video taken by driver Edward Caban helped them decide that the new charges could be proven beyond a reasonable doubt.
