KUANTAN,: About an hour after insulting a traffic policewoman on his Facebook page, a man was arrested at a roadblock at Jalan Teluk Sisek here, early this morning.
Kuantan police chief ACP Abdul Aziz Salleh said, earlier at around 12.30m, the 23-year-old man from Permatang Badak here was issued a summons at a roadblock by the policewoman for modifying his car exhaust.
“The suspect, who was driving a Proton Satria Neo car was reportedly unhappy with the action taken by the policewoman leading him to insult her by uploading a status to his Facebook account.
“His posting was later found out by a traffic personnel before informing to the policewoman about it,” he told reporters here today.
Unaware that his action was discovered by the police, he passed through another police roadblock while on his way home.
The suspect was arrested at that roadblock and was taken to the Kuantan Police Station for further investigations under Section 233 (1) of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998.
“We will hand over the case to the Communications and Multimedia Commission for further action,” he said.- BERNAMA
