Road bully who harassed cop driver arrested

KUALA LUMPUR (Sept 19): A man was arrested in connection with a road bully incident in front of the Mutiara Damansara Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) bus stop on Thursday.

Petaling Jaya district police chief, ACP Nik Ezanee Mohd Faisal said in the 3.20 pm (Thursday) incident, the 34-year-old victim was reported to have made a 'U' turn at the traffic light in Palm Spring Kota Damansara, here before running into a motorist who refused to give way to him.

He said the 52-year-old suspect, who was driving a Proton Saga vehicle was not happy with the action and began to drive closely towards the Perodua Myvi car belonging to a policeman.

"The suspect then tailgated the victim's car from behind before overtaking and abruptly stopping his car in front of the victim's car, causing the victim to stop," he told Bernama yesterday.

Nik Ezanee said the suspect then got out of the car and scolded the victim using offensive words.

"Both individuals lodged a police report, but the suspect refused to cooperate with the investigating officer who tried to explain the reasons for his arrest.

"The suspect shouted and ranted before snatching a copy of the report held by the officer," he said.

Nik Ezanee said, following his action, the suspect was remanded by the Petaling Jaya District Police Headquarters (IPD) for four days to assist in the investigation under Section 14 of the Minor Offences Act 1955, Section 90 of the Police Act 1967 and Section 186 of the Penal Code for obstructing the duties of a civil servant.
