KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 26, 2015:
The driver of a car paid a hefty price after an obscene gesture was allegedly made by his passenger.
As a result, his car’s windshield was smashed by a biker during an incident that took place along a highway near University Putra Malaysia (UPM) yesterday.
In the incident that occurred at 6.30pm, a 40-year-old Caucasian biker smashed the windscreen of a Perodua Myvi after the car passenger allegedly gave the biker the middle finger.
During the incident, the biker, a United Kingdom (UK) national, was riding on the far right lane of the highway and apparently refused to give way to the car, resulting in the two vehicles almost colliding.
Angered by the near accident, the biker allegedly forced the car to stop before breaking the car’s windshield after a brief altercation took place with the driver.
Kajang district police chief Assistant Commissioner Richard Willey said both the driver of the car and the biker lodged police reports yesterday and the investigation papers had been sent to the Deputy Public Prosecutor’s office to be processed.
He said that the charges would be read at the Kajang court tomorrow.
“No arrests have been made and the motorcyclist will be called to court tomorrow to face the charges.
“No weapons were used and the suspect punched the car’s front windshield until it cracked,” he said when contacted by The Rakyat Post.
He stated that the case was investigated under Section 506 of the Penal Code for making criminal threats and Section 427 of the Penal Code for criminal intimidation.
A video of the incident went viral on social media today, garnering public criticism.
