A Florida man was charged with battery and child abuse after he attacked his Lyft driver. The rider Travis Smith is seen in the video ripping down the barrier before attacking the driver. Smith then put the driver in a choke hold causing the driver to lose control. Once outside the car the fight continued, and Smith spit on the driver.
Smith who police say was drunk, was traveling with another man and a 7-year old boy. He was charged with battery and child abuse because he put the boy in danger.
