Let us see a Narration from Tabaqat ibn Saad, 1/113

36 – قَالَ: أَخْبَرَنَا أَحْمَدُ بْنُ مُحَمَّدِ بْنِ الْوَلِيدِ الْأَزْرَقِيُّ، وَالْوَلِيدُ بْنُ عَطَاءِ بْنِ الْأَغَرِّ الْمَكِّيَّانِ، قَالَا: حَدَّثَنَا عَمْرُو بْنُ يَحْيَى بْنِ سَعِيدٍ الْأُمَوِيُّ، عَنْ جَدِّهِ قَالَ: دَخَلَ مُعَاوِيَةُ عَلَى عُمَرَ بْنِ الْخَطَّابِ وَعَلَيْهِ حُلَّةٌ خَضْرَاءُ، فَنَظَرَ إِلَيْهَا أَصْحَابُ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ، فَلَمَّا رَأَى ذَلِكَ عُمَرُ وَثَبَ إِلَيْهِ وَمَعَهُ الدِّرَّةُ فَجَعَلَ ضَرْبًا لِمُعَاوِيَةَ، وَمُعَاوِيَةُ يَقُولُ: اللَّهَ اللَّهَ يَا أَمِيرَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ، فِيمَ فِيمَ؟ قَالَ: فَلَمْ يُكَلِّمْهُ حَتَّى رَجَعَ فَجَلَسَ فِي مَجْلِسِهِ، فَقَالَ لَهُ الْقَوْمُ: لِمَ ضَرَبْتَ الْفَتَى يَا أَمِيرَ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ؟ مَا فِي قَوْمِكَ مِثْلَهُ، فَقَالَ: «وَاللَّهِ مَا رَأَيْتُ إِلَّا خَيْرًا، وَمَا بَلَغَنِي إِلَّا خَيْرًا وَلَكِنِّي رَأَيْتُهُ، وَأَشَارَ بِيَدِهِ، فَأَحْبَبْتُ أَنْ أَضَعَ مِنْهُ»

Muawwia came in wearing green dress; so Umar saw him; and started beating him with lash

This made mawia say: Allah Allah! o Amir ul Momineen!

So Umar returned to where he was sitting; Then people asked: What made you whip him o Amir ul Momineen? Who is like him in This Nation? He said: I have not seen but Good in him, and I have not received but good about Him, otherwise, I would have done what you have not seen; but I saw this; and he pointed with his hand; and so I decided to take out 

Main Narrator of This Narration is Saeed bin Amr bin Saeed, He is narrator of Saheeh Bukhari and Muslim. Dhabi wrote in Sair A’laam Nabala, 5/ 201 that Nisai and others termed him Trustoworthy

ٍSecond Narrator is Amr bin Yahya bin Saeed al-Umawi, and He is Trustworthy in view of Ibn Hajr, and is a Narrator of Saheeh Bukhari and Ibn Maja

Third Narrator is Ahmad bin Mohammad bin Walid, He is Narrator of Saheeh Bukhari too, and Trustworthy in view of Ibn Hajr and Dhabi

Apart from him, Walid bin A’ta is also taking this Narration from Amr bin Yahya. Dhabi wrote about him in Meezan-ul-A’tadal, 4/342, and said that Shazan, Nadr bin Salma and Ibn A’di termed him Trustworthy.

So this chain is authentic, atleast on terms of Saheeh Bukhari

But Why was Umar beating him ?
